About Me

Biography

When I was growing up, my passion for my community inspired me to become a physician. I was constantly seeing examples of health inequities due to social and economic disparities. I chose pediatrics because I feel that it’s important to start addressing preventable health conditions in childhood. Children have such a joyful and resilient nature, which brings me joy in my work.

I’m a pediatrician who works in both the Complex Care Center and the Pediatric Primary Care Center. My care philosophy is a very personal one — I believe that it is important to foster rapport with my patients and families to build a sense of trust, which ultimately leads to better outcomes.

When I was in medical school, I was president of the Student National Medical Association. I was chief resident at Kaiser Permanente Pediatric Residence Program in Northern California. In my practice at Cincinnati Children’s, I have a passion for serving my community, both medically and through mentorship.

I love traveling and have a strong interest in global health. I’ve served in many different countries, including Kenya, China, Spain and Ecuador.
