My role also includes teaching medical students and residents. I love teaching and try to incorporate it into the patient care I provide. This approach includes educating families about their child’s illness. I want to empower patients and their families to ask questions, advocate for themselves and take additional steps to improve their child’s health.

About

Biography

As a pediatric hospitalist, I provide care to hospitalized children at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center Burnet and Liberty campuses. I also care for children who require inpatient hospitalization after surgery.

When a child stays in the hospital, it can be scary and stressful for patients and their families. My job is to care for the child’s medical needs and help make their time in the hospital a more positive experience.

In my free time, I like to take my family to nearby parks. During the summer, we enjoy visiting the lake or the beach.
