I have had a lifelong passion for the care of children. I knew from the very early years of medical school that taking care of babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) would become my life’s work.
Neonatology is an exciting, rapidly evolving field that encompasses critical care medicine with early childhood physiology. Most babies make tremendous strides toward better health in just a few weeks. Witnessing and facilitating this growth is an extremely rewarding process.
I find it a privilege to work with the highly capable team at Cincinnati Children’s NICU. Our collective goals are not only to provide outstanding clinical care, but also to advance the science of neonatology. My specific interests lie in neonatal resuscitation, quality improvement and teaching residents and fellows. My training has been in tertiary care facilities — where the sickest babies of the region receive care. I enjoy addressing complex pathologies and managing multidisciplinary care, while educating the next generation of physicians.
In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, biking and walks in the neighborhood. I spend my evenings at the park with my husband and young daughter. I am a photography enthusiast and relish an opportunity to capture good moments on the camera.
