I am a pediatric hospitalist who cares for children who stay at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. I believe involving families in their child's care is essential because families are the experts when it comes to their children. They are also an important part of the care team, and I value this shared partnership.
Children are what inspired me to work in pediatrics. I love children and admire that they are incredibly resilient. Their joy, despite difficulties, continually amazes me. I also fell in love with pediatrics because of the added challenges of working with children and their families.
I enjoy academic medicine and working at a large institution because one of my passions is training future pediatricians and medical education.
When I’m not at work, I spend time with my family, especially outdoors. I also enjoy cooking and baking with my daughter.
