As a pediatric allergist, I specialize in all areas of pediatric allergy including food allergy, eczema, asthma, seasonal allergies and medication allergies. I enjoy working with families and being a partner in their child’s health. My focus is on making sure the child and family are comfortable and well-informed throughout their visit and that all their questions and concerns are addressed.
My dream as a child was to become a pediatrician. I was fortunate to work with wonderful mentors, including my own pediatrician, to explore my interest. I love the field of allergy and immunology and having the opportunity to assist families through their healthcare journey. It’s very gratifying to help children of all ages.
In addition to seeing patients, I also do research — primarily on food allergies and how to treat them. I also support asthma and eczema research, where we work to find more effective care and prevention options for atopy (hypersensitivity to allergens).
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our dog. We like to explore both new and familiar places in Cincinnati.
