I am a pediatrician who provides general primary care to children. I serve as the Community Health Services Network's medical director for the community-based primary care practices of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
My goal is to help families raise children to be successful adults who are healthy, joyful and able to have meaningful relationships. To do this, I work to develop partnerships with my patients’ families.
I became a pediatrician thanks to my interest in science and a desire to work with children. I knew this was the career for me after working as a camp counselor for children with cancer.
After residency, I spent seven years working in a practice in rural Alabama, before deciding to return to Cincinnati Children’s to further pursue my interest in quality improvement. My colleagues and I want to understand systems of care to help practices deliver care more reliably and effectively for all patients — especially those with special healthcare needs.
During my free time, I enjoy running, spending time with my family, baking bread and taking trips to Canada.
