I am a neonatologist who enjoys caring for infants and their families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and after discharge in the Neonatal Follow-up Clinic.

From early on in medical school, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in neonatology to help provide longitudinal care to critically ill infants while supporting their families through this often- unexpected experience. In the NICU, I am part of a medical team that cares for premature and critically ill infants. Because preterm infants are at increased risk for medical complications and developmental delays in childhood, we follow NICU graduates in our Neonatal Follow-up Clinic for the first two to three years of life. This allows us to monitor their growth, development and complex medical needs.

One of my specific interests is the care of preterm infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). I am a member of the Cincinnati Children’s BPD team and help care for infants after hospital discharge in the BPD Neonatal Follow-up Clinic.

In addition to my clinical interests, I am passionate about medical education. I have significant involvement with medical student, resident and fellow education within the Division of Neonatology.

My current research interest is exploring procedural competency and comfort over the span of neonatologists’ careers.
