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.

Dayton Survey

When you have to reschedule an appointment it takes months until you can get back in. Wish this wasn’t the case.

Dayton Survey

The Dr. was great, TO be honest the room was really warm, it would be nice if it was cooler. My 20 year old and I were both warm. Hard to get a follow up appointment in the time frame she wants. She is so busy, Good Dr.'s . are busy .
