Clinical Interests
As a nephrology provider for over 10 years, I am experienced in treating children of all ages, including newborns and young adults, with acute and/or chronic kidney disease. I am also interested in the management of children with high blood pressure.

Care Philosophy
I believe in a family centered approach to caring for children with kidney disease. I believe patient and family education is essential for fostering a team approach to treatment and overall health.

Personal Interests
I recently relocated from Chicago and the weather and outdoor lifestyle of Colorado is fantastic! I enjoy hiking and skiing.

Volunteer Activities
For the past 3 years I have been actively involved with the National Kidney Foundation in a variety of volunteer roles. I participate in local fundraising and community screening events for kidney disease. In addition, I am a state representative for advocacy efforts that support research and awareness of kidney disease at the national level. I was previously involved with the Make A Wish Foundation of Illinois as a Wish Granter for 10 years.
