My Passion for Healthcare

I have been interested in hormonal disorders since medical school. I was a camp doctor for a diabetes camp while a pediatric resident and it was such a joy to work with these children. I learned a great deal about diabetes at that camp but I also decided I wanted to spend my career working with adolescents and their families. I love pediatric medicine and it is a gift to be able to see my patients grow and mature over the years. We aim to provide our patients with the skills and knowledge to care for themselves as adults.

My Clinical Focus

We treat a wide spectrum of endocrine disorders including type 1 and type 2 diabetes, thyroid disease, and growth and puberty disorders. I love working as a team with the patient and their family to help guide treatment options. Many of the disorders we treat are long term chronic conditions and it is important for me to get to know the child and the parents so we can navigate management together. Everyone wants the same outcome: a healthy, happy child.
