About

Biography

I am a fellowship-trained pediatric allergist whose clinical and research interests include food allergy, food oral immunotherapy and preschool asthma.

My job is highly rewarding. In my clinical practice, I love teaching children and their families about food allergies and making them feel like they have a partner in their journey. In my role as a researcher, I study how to prevent food allergy and asthma. Specifically, I want to understand if it is possible to halt the progression to lifelong peanut and tree nut allergy in infants and toddlers. I am also involved with research activities that aim to prevent lifelong asthma in at-risk preschoolers.

I’m co-investigator on several clinical trials at Cincinnati Children’s, including studies on the prevention of asthma in preschoolers that are actively recruiting participants. I’ve also authored several studies and reviews in pediatric asthma.

During medical school, I was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. This lifelong honor is reserved for the top medical students in their respective classes and signifies a lasting commitment to professionalism, leadership, scholarship, research and community service.
