As a pediatric neuroradiologist, I interpret imaging scans of the brain, spine, eye sockets, face and neck in children. I also work with many members of our department to improve the patient and family imaging experience.
My college experiences inspired me to become a doctor. The interesting variety of acquired and congenital anomalies involving the brain, spine, head and neck in children drew me to pediatric neuroradiology. My incredible mentors as a radiology resident contributed to my choosing neuroradiology as a specialty.
My research focuses on studying imaging abnormalities involving children’s faces, ears, eyes and necks, and improving the patient and family imaging experience. I want to understand how we can better serve patients and families through the entire imaging journey. I look at every aspect of the patient experience — from the initial imaging order to when the patient receives their imaging results.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my two children, my husband and my extended family.
