I love caring for children and being able to engage with families and offer support during their most difficult times. My goal is to bring healing and comfort to ease their burden. I was proud to earn the Cincinnati Children’s Division of Hospital Medicine Award for Excellence in Clinical Care in 2019.
As a hospital medicine pediatrician, I believe the family and the medical staff are a team that comes together for the common goal of the well-being and healing of the sick child. We strive to listen to the questions and concerns of the family and share our expertise and medical knowledge in a way that families can understand.
My research passions are around evidence-based care. This involves performing research to generate new evidence to guide our medical decision-making, as well as educating other members of the medical team and implementing known evidence to ensure a high quality of delivered care. I believe we should be always learning and improving for the betterment of our patients.
