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.

Our nurse Sarah and Dr.Nicholson are consistently knowledgeable and compassionate. I wouldn’t take my son anywhere else. I feel confident with the guidance they provide.
