Philosophy of care
To provide my best care for children and families, regardless of who they are, where they are from or what is going on in their lives. I believe every kid in this world deserves access to the best possible care. I have spent the last 16 years practicing inpatient and outpatient complex care pediatrics locally as well as developing global health programs so other countries can improve their quality and access to care.
Why I entered medicine
I wanted to be a doctor from an early age; one of my aunts had surgery and then we watched the same surgery in school. I saw medicine as a challenging career that allowed me to work closely with families. I tell students I was drawn to pediatrics because I loved the range of diseases and working with children, but really, I am just a big kid myself, so it seems fitting to work with my "peers."
I have always been very active in my community. I have been a Cub scoutmaster and a church elder and coached Little League and travel baseball more than a decade. I truly believe part of caring for a community is also participating in that community. I have tried to be as involved as my job would allow.
I very much enjoy sports and have three children playing sports in college. I will stop and watch any sporting event anywhere no matter the age of the participants. I also spend free time on woodworking or taking hikes and walks.
