About

Biography

I’m a pediatric neurology resident in the Pediatrics Residency Program. My goal is to develop and establish a positive therapeutic partnership with every patient and family. When I see a patient and their family, I will always listen to everything they have to say before creating a plan that addresses all their concerns.

I decided to pursue neurology because I’m captivated by the brain’s neuroplasticity and by the resilience of children. I appreciate the thorough nature needed to investigate neurological symptoms and understand that every factor in a child’s life plays a role in their particular symptom(s). No other field offers the work complexity of child neurology, and I’m beyond excited to be a part of this specialty.

I don’t have a specific area of practice yet, but I’m interested in pursuing research opportunities to inform evidence-based practice.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking and exploring the gorgeous outdoor areas in and around Cincinnati with my partner and pup, Rosie. I also love rooting for the Philadelphia Eagles, reading a good book (usually Stephen King) and cuddling with my cat, Frankie Jane.
