My Biography & Research

Biography

I was inspired to become a neonatologist because the care provided immediately after birth can have a lasting impact on a child's health and well-being throughout their life. I treat each newborn with compassion and with the care that their family would want for them.

Our team provides hospital care for newborns across the spectrum of health — from well newborns immediately after birth, to premature infants who spend their first weeks to months in the hospital, to critically ill infants with congenital anomalies.

I led a team that received the Distinctive Achievement Award at the national Children's Hospital Association Quality Conference, for our work to reduce a serious complication of prematurity (necrotizing enterocolitis). I’ve also been named to Cincinnati Magazine’s Top Doctors list multiple times.

In my free time, I’m learning to raise my first dog — a very energetic golden retriever.
