My Passion for Healthcare

I always knew I wanted to be involved in healthcare because I enjoy science and helping others. I chose pediatric endocrinology after spending a summer at a camp for children with Type one diabetes. I was amazed at how active and happy these kids were, despite having a life-changing condition. I'm still in awe at the challenges children overcome, and I work to make life easier for my patients and their families.

My Clinical Focus

I enjoy seeing a variety of endocrine patients and visiting with their families. I try to teach patients about their conditions, and to inform them about what is happening with their bodies. I like using technology to provide evidence-based, comprehensive care. I have a special interest in diabetes, endocrine effects of optic nerve hypoplasia, pubertal disorders and thyroid disease. Endocrinology is a fascinating field and I try to convey my excitement and passion when I teach patients, medical students, and physicians. Most of all, I love having fun with patients, families and clinicians!
