Clinical Interest for Patients
My clinical interests focus on the treatment of pediatric patients in the Urgent/Emergency Care setting. This allows me to work with a wide variety of patients from those with common colds to severe injuries and everything in between.

Care Philosophy
I realize that the urgent care or emergency department can be a hectic place, but I strive to slow down and make sure every child gets the time they deserve. I like to let families know what they can do at home to help their little one feel better as well as things to look for that suggest their child may need to be seen again. Mostly, I hope to connect with our patients and families to help make their experience at Children's a positive one.
