Schedule a Vaccination | Reminder: Masks Are Still Required When Visiting
Member, Division of Pulmonary Medicine
Assistant Professor, UC Department of Pediatrics
As a pediatric pulmonologist, I specialize in caring for children with complex airway and aerodigestive disorders as part of a multidisciplinary team. I also care for children born prematurely who develop chronic lung disease. Some of these patients require extra oxygen or medications, while others need a ventilator to support their breathing.
I was inspired to become a pediatrician because I wanted to have a lifelong impact on my patients and their families. I was drawn to pediatric pulmonology by my interest in respiratory physiology and a desire to follow patients across multiple settings. Whether these settings are in the hospital or the clinic, I make sure there is continuity of care for the patient and family.
In my practice, I strive to understand my patients' and their families' goals and involve them in the process of medical decision-making. I want patients and families to feel that their concerns are heard and will be addressed to the best of my ability.
I enjoy spending my free time hiking and visiting national parks with my husband.
