Our clinic is a regional trusted resource for families and community providers who have concerns about abuse or neglect.
Family and child evaluation for suspected maltreatment must always include family support and education about the behavioral and emotional impacts of child maltreatment. My pediatric based approach is always family centered care, delivered with sensitivity and empathy. The journey from trauma through recovery is one that I walk with patients of all ages and their caregivers.
I enjoy gardening, the arts in all forms, and winter outdoor activities.
I am dedicated to volunteer work in my hospital and with its community partners as part of my role as pediatric faculty. I am active in raising awareness about the issue of child abuse fundraising for arts organizations that support access for children to the arts in our community, and a champion of our children's hospital vibrant art collection.
