I’ve wanted to be a doctor since I was little, and this desire was solidified through my sister’s long children’s hospital stay in high school due to a brain aneurysm rupture. I love kids’ resilience, honesty, and humor, and I always leave work with a funny story. I believe in partnering with families, sharing evidence- based medicine, and treating patients holistically to help each child reach their unique potential.
