About

Biography

I'm an endocrinologist specializing in treating hormone disorders, including diabetes, thyroid disease, and growth and puberty problems. I provide compassionate, personalized care and enjoy developing connections with my patients and their families. My approach to care is family centered. I listen to the needs of my patients and their caregivers and work with them to devise a personalized treatment plan.

The research I conduct focuses on genetic forms of diabetes and congenital hyperinsulinism. We are interested in increasing our understanding of how genetic mutations cause anomalies in beta cell development leading to inadequate or excess insulin production and secretion. Our studies use translational and basic science approaches.

My research is supported by internal grants from Cincinnati Children’s and the American Diabetes Association. My work has been published in well-respected journals, including Gastroenterology, Nature Communications, Cell Stem Cell, Journal of Pathology, Endocrinology and Diabetologia.

When I'm not caring for patients or working in the lab, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and sampling foods from different parts of the world.
