About Me

Biography

Since deciding to go to medical school, I knew I wanted to take care of children. It was there that I realized I wanted to be a surgeon. Being a pediatric otolaryngologist allows me to do both. I take care of both general pediatric ear, nose and throat conditions and manage complex airway and swallowing disorders. I also specialize in caring for children with CHARGE syndrome, a rare genetic disorder.

Developing relationships with my patients and their families allows me to understand their needs and concerns. These connections, and being able to help children, are the things that drive me.

Our clinical fellows have honored me with the faculty teaching award twice in the past seven years. Teaching the next generation of surgeons is an important and incredibly meaningful part of my job.

My research focuses on a better understanding of surgical management of airway stenosis and improving safety in tracheostomy tube-dependent children.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time outside with my two children and our puppy.
