About Me


As a primary care pediatrician, I love working with families to help them achieve their children's dreams. All families want the best for their children, and our job is to help them achieve it.

I’ve been involved in healthcare since I was a 14-year-old candy striper. Before coming to Cincinnati Children’s, I worked with an underserved population in a federally qualified health center for 11 years. I am the medical director of Fairfield Primary Care, with a diverse community and the largest percentage of patients using interpreter services in general pediatrics.

I also participate in several statewide collaboratives to increase our outreach in firearm safety, literacy, vaping cessation and dental care access. I serve on the editorial board of Ohio Pediatrics, and I’m very active in the Ohio chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics — focusing on advocacy and quality improvement projects.

My patients may be interested to know that I live on a farm! My husband and I have three children, many cats, a few dogs and a fluctuating number of cows.
