About

Biography

My love for taking care of each patient as a unique person is what excites me about my career. I like the relationships we develop with families of patients with chronic disease, and by the goal of making children healthier.

As a pediatric gastroenterologist, I care for children and adolescents with intestinal failure, short gut syndrome and pediatric special-needs nutritional disorders. In addition to my pediatrics and pediatric gastroenterology training, I have an additional year of training that focused on advanced pediatric nutrition at Cincinnati Children’s. I’m also involved in research studies on micronutrient deficiencies.

In my practice, I strive for excellence in care to bring the child’s life as close to normal as possible, despite the chronic illness. I believe that every patient deserves their own specific approach to care. We should address all biological, behavioral and psychosocial issues related to the disease process to provide excellent care.

I am honored to be part of the team that received the Clinical Care Team Achievement Award in 2019 — The Intestinal Care Center. I was the first trainee at the Cincinnati Children’s advanced pediatric nutrition fellowship program. I am currently the at-large director of the National Board of Nutrition Support Certification.

When I’m not helping patients, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my kids and husband. I am originally from Brazil, and I speak Portuguese. I usually travel to Brazil at least once a year.
