During her final year of medical school, she spent a month working at a hospital in Sierra Leone, West Africa – "an amazing opportunity to see medicine practiced in the most basic of conditions that made me very thankful for the technology we have available here."

​I really enjoy working with parents to provide them with the information and education they need to make informed decisions for the health and well-being of their children. I strive to provide strong communication with parents, so that we can work together to help their children grow and thrive.
