I knew I wanted to work with children long before I wanted to be a physician. Their innocence and potential encourage me to inspire the next generation who could, ultimately, change the world.
As a pediatric endocrinologist, I treat all endocrine conditions, however, I work in some special areas. These special areas include congenital hypothyroidism and Type 1 diabetes. I’m very invested in health disparities which occur in children with diabetes. I am especially passionate about equal access to healthcare for patients who are at high risk for complications from diabetes.
I believe that disease and illness are not what define you — instead, it’s your life experiences. So, if you don't take your medicine because your insurance company doesn't cover it, I understand. If you missed your appointment because you don't have transportation, I empathize. I work to change my healthcare delivery to meet the needs of my patients.
In my research, I seek ways to improve the health outcomes of all children with chronic diseases, such as Type 1 diabetes.
During my free time, I am very active in community service. I explore my passion for healthcare beyond the hospital walls of Cincinnati Children’s.
