Clinical Interest for Patients
I am interested in pediatric infectious diseases, including common infections such as osteomyelitis, pneumonia, and skin infections. I have a special interest in caring for children who are HIV-infected or HIV-exposed.

Care Philosophy
I was drawn to pediatrics because it allows me to develop rewarding relationships with my patients and families. I strive to practice evidence-based medicine while treating patients and their families as integral members of the health care team.

Volunteer Activities
I volunteer every year at Roundup River Ranch, a summer camp that gives kids with serious illnesses the chance to have fun and experience the great outdoors.
