About Me


Ever since I was a child, I have wanted to be a physician. My dad is a neonatologist, and he fostered my love of science and medicine, pricking his finger so I could examine his blood under the microscope, and always encouraging my path to becoming a doctor.

As a pediatric hospitalist, I specialize in hospitalized children, including those on the general pediatric service, and in consultation and co-management of surgical patients with medical comorbidities.

I meet families at one of the most stressful times — their child is ill enough to require hospitalization. My goal with patient and family interactions is to build their trust through my expertise and personal connection. If I can ease their anxiety a little bit and form an alliance, the healing process has already begun.

Outside of work, I stay busy with my young family. My husband and I had three children in four and a half years! We love family days and being outside – from bubbles and backyard camping, to hiking and skipping rocks on a river. I am also a podcast junkie and a proud plant lady with lots of indoor plants and an outdoor vegetable garden.
