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

I never thought in a million years my baby girl would have a life long disease. Finding out she has Type 1 diabetes came as a complete shock and broke my heart. When I heard the nurses say "type 1 diabetes" I froze. My mind went racing with a thousand questions, tears fell down my cheeks while I held her down for an IV. From the moment I walked in the emergency doors,i feel like everyone did their absolute best at taking care of her. A special thank you to RN, Abagail Bower(I think that's her name). She was so amazing with her, kind, gentle and patient. My daughter really liked her and warmed up to her. I had to learn quite a bit in a short period of time but I left the hospital feeling confident. She has adjusted very well to the shots and dieting so far. I recommend any parent whom has a child with diabetes to go to the Diabetes Clinic.

She is a really great Dr. She knows her stuff & doesn't make you feel stupid when she explains things to you. She makes you feel comfortable in her office & your not nervous at all. Her nurses are awesome too!

Not crazy about our dr. But i don't feel like i need to see anyone else. Would just like more information on testing results. I would highly recommend children's hospital.
