Professional Bio

My overall career goal is to help improve the care of children with neurologic disability. Early in my training I decided to focus on neurogenetics, as many causes of neurologic disorders in childhood have a genetic basis. After completion of my pediatrics and medical genetics training at the University of Connecticut, I then moved to St. Louis for child neurology training at Washington University. I arrived at the University of Rochester in August of 2012, and see patients as part of the Neurogenetics Consultation Service. This is a service with genetic counseling support that draws on the expertise of several disciplines at URMC, including child neurology, medical genetics, and developmental pediatrics.
