About

Biography

I am a pediatric neuroradiologist with a special interest in fetal imaging. Like many of my colleagues, I am a parent and I strive to provide the same level of care I would want for my own children.

My mentors in pediatric radiology during my residency played key roles in shaping my career decisions. Their passion, dedication and clinical excellence inspired me to pursue a fellowship in pediatric radiology. While imaging is only one part of the entire portfolio of clinical care, I am fortunate to be part of a team of experts at Cincinnati Children’s who work together to provide the best care possible.

The research I’m doing focuses on fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the developing brain. I hope that our work can further improve our ability to diagnose brain anomalies in the fetus accurately.

In my free time, I enjoy being with my children.
