Biography

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

As a pediatrician at English Road Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, 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 academic work at the University spanning from medical students and residents to faculty and other healthcare providers. My scholarly work focuses on medical education, community-level advocacy, and physician wellness.
