    What I Do
    My goal is to bring together my perspective as a pediatrician with your insights about your child to provide recommendations that work for your family. I enjoy the full spectrum of pediatrics, and within that my special clinical interests include seeing patients with complex or chronic medical conditions, supporting and guiding healthy lifestyle goals, and taking care of children and teens with behavioral health concerns.

    Why I Love My Work
    I enjoy getting to know children and their families and empowering them to understand their health conditions to make practical health goals.

    Childhood is such an important time in everyone’s life. I cannot imagine a more pivotal point in our lives than childhood to prevent disease, treat medical problems, and foster the best possible health and development of a person. I appreciate the opportunity to support kids as they grow into amazing human beings.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work, I enjoy gardening, hiking, board games, and spending time with family and friends.

    Before becoming a doctor, I worked in the community in a preschool classroom for three years, was a Spanish interpreter at a clinic, and taught classes on the citizenship test.
