My passions include caring for children to improve their overall health and teaching trainees and other healthcare providers.

As a pediatrician, I enjoy working with children and their families to provide guidance during a child's development, appropriate treatment during illness, and support throughout. My approach is to work in partnership with my patients, families, and the community to help each individual be as healthy as possible.

I love to teach and include it in my practice as well as my education work with the University of Rochester. My scholarly work focuses on medical education particularly related to residency training. I'm also interested in community-level advocacy, physician wellness, and fostering equity and belonging.
