Making sure we are here for families and patients as a whole ensures we’re providing the best possible care.



As a pediatric neuro-oncologist, my philosophy is to treat my patients' diseases to the best of my ability and care for them and their families as people, not just a condition to cure. Making sure we are here for families and patients as a whole ensures we’re providing the best possible care.

Initially, I was inspired to become a pediatrician because of my childhood pediatrician's care and experience. As I continued through medical training, I was amazed by children's resiliency and knew I wanted to care for them.

I was drawn to pediatric oncology because it uses the most current advances in healthcare. I also enjoy working with the most remarkable patients and families. Their strength inspires me to work harder every day.

In my research, I am trying to better understand how we can cure pediatric central nervous system (CNS) tumors with poor outcomes. I’m also looking at how to treat relapsed or refractory disease using novel clinical trials or therapies and directly translating this research from the lab.

In my free time, I like to explore parks and spend time outside with my family.
