I specialize in clinical social work with transgender patients and their families in the Transgender Clinic at Cincinnati Children’s. I believe in meeting families where they are and building collaborative relationships to ensure the best outcomes for our patients.
I was drawn to join this team because of my passion and experience working with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning (LGBTQ+) community, and trans patients in particular. I believe supporting our most vulnerable patients in these challenging times is essential.
My priority is to support patients and assist families as they help their children be happy, healthy and safe. I guide families who are navigating tough questions, strengthening relationships and identifying individualized treatment goals.
When not working, I love spending cold mornings staying warm with my cat, Winston, whom I raised from kittenhood. I also enjoy reading fantasy novels. My favorite series is Redwall by Brian Jacques.
