get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I feel very passionate about diabetes and children and want to make sure children learn to lead full, healthy lives with diabetes. I am also very passionate about healthy weight in children and weight loss strategies.


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

my husband grew up in Dayton and we love Dayton and its people.


Dayton Children's is special because...

it is a great place to work- big enough to have all best and modern treatments available and small enough that every child gets personal attention from doctors and nurses.
