As a pediatrician, I practice general pediatric care at Cincinnati Children’s primary care facilities. I treat everyone as if they are my personal friends, and I take time to answer all questions and concerns.
I enjoy infants, children and adolescents and find their growth and development fascinating. I tend to be very straightforward with patients and their parents. I will often pull from my experience as a mother to address concerns to complement my knowledge as a pediatrician. I understand the importance of quality healthcare, anticipatory guidance, continuity of care and appropriate communication. Watching my patients grow and mature over the years has given me great pleasure. I have maintained contact with several of my past patients and enjoy hearing of their successes.
My work experience is quite varied. I have been in practice since 1992, working in Atlanta and Minnesota before landing in Cincinnati. I worked in private practice for 15 years, and before that I worked at Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) for several years. I enjoy teaching and treating patients in all environments.
I have served as a preceptor for school nurses, medical students, residents and nurse practitioner students. In the past, I volunteered as a medical missionary in Haiti to help their underserved pediatric and adult population.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors, traveling with my husband (Dr. Paul Waller), reading and listening to music. As a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., I like helping the community through various service projects that are organized by my sorority chapter.
