In my practice, I use patient- and family-centered care, and I believe it’s important to provide care as a multidisciplinary team that includes family members.



As a neonatologist, I care for premature infants and those with medically complex conditions. I specialize in treating infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) and bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). I enjoy caring for CDH patients in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. My research focuses on improving outcomes for infants born with CDH.

Since I was a medical student, I’ve been fascinated by caring for sick newborns, especially seeing them improve throughout their hospital stay. In my practice, I use patient- and family-centered care, and I believe it’s important to provide care as a multidisciplinary team that includes family members.

As senior medical director for the Level IV Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Cincinnati Children’s, my focus is on quality improvement and patient safety. I’m also engaged in post-discharge NICU follow-up care for newborns and infants with complex medical needs.

In my free time, I love spending time with my family and our Great Dane, Blue. We enjoy fitness activities together and vacationing with family over the summer.
