About

Biography

My clinical specialty is pediatric hematology. I care for patients with bleeding/clotting disorders and general blood disorders. Each patient is on a unique journey, and I’ve been gifted the opportunity to be part of their lives. I strive to build a caring, kind, professional relationship while providing medical care.

My desire to serve others as my life’s work inspired me to become a doctor. I was drawn to pediatrics early in medical school. Children are such unique and wonderful human beings to work with. They have tremendous resilience, but at the same time, they have many needs. I became interested in hematology due to the complexity and exciting nature of the coagulation cascade and the need to improve the care of patients of all genders living with bleeding disorders.

I’m also a researcher working to understand the effects of anemia on Von Willebrand’s disease.

During my free time, I love to be with my family, go on walks, enjoy nature and travel. I also like learning about other cultures and unique cuisines.
