get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I have an intrigue and passion for babies that started at a very young age and it has never gone away.  Their strength and resilience has captivated me forever. 


I chose to work at Dayton Children's because...

we make a difference in the lives of our babies and their families every single day.  I feel privileged to care for our babies and help parents become experts in the care of their baby.


Dayton Children's is special because...

we understand how to care for children.  We are dedicated to improving the health of the children of the Miami Valley and surrounding communities. We do not see children as “little adults”.  We do great work and have excellent outcomes-that does not just happen.  We are the experts.
