Why did you choose a career in pediatrics?
I love being around kids. They are adorable! Their smiles light up my world and bring me happiness. Pediatrics was never a career option, it was just where I was always meant to be.

What do you enjoy most about being a doctor?
I love learning new things and skills! And there are INFINITE things to learn in medicine.

What do you like to do in your free time?
I like being in nature, around trees and mountains. I like reading. I like trying new activities and traveling.

What is something that you want patients to know about you?
I am honored to take care of children in this community.
