Why did you choose your specialty area?
There's never a boring day in pediatrics. The unique perspective and directness of children can foster some amazingly wise insights as well as hilarious and adorable commentary. From their tiny beginnings, each child is a unique blessing, and I am honored to play a role in supporting their health and development.
How do you spend your spare time?
Most of my time is spent caring for my 1 year old son. He demands a good deal of attention but returns the favor with sweet giggles, fun play-time, and cozy cuddles. I also enjoy traveling, hiking, kayaking, reading, and cooking.
#1 health tip that you can offer:
Vaccines save lives! Have your child vaccinated, and if your family is expecting a new baby, ask your doctor about what vaccines you can get to help protect him or her.
