I chose a career in pediatrics because children are the light of my life! I feel privileged to watch them grow up and to be able to help them and their parents along the way with support and guidance. My philosophy is to partner with my patients through open communication and creating a safe space. I want my patients and their parents to feel heard, cared for, and empowered to make the healthcare decisions that are best for them and their families!
