I have always known that I wanted to be a pediatrician – in fact, I was an ARC patient through my childhood! Pediatrics allows me to build meaningful, long-lasting relationships with my patients and their families. Watching children grow up and meet milestones is one of my most rewarding experiences. My role as a pediatrician is to guide and empower my patients in making healthy decisions that will positively impact their long-term health outcomes as they transition into adulthood. I take an evidence-based, team approach in supporting children from all aspects of wellness, including physical, mental and social well-being.
