I take great pleasure in caring for pediatric patients of all ages, from tiny newborns to young adults. One of my most important priorities is to assist you in enhancing the emotional and physical well-being of your growing children. Realizing that no single approach to parenting is the “right one,” I use my clinical skills and expertise as a keen listener and observer to help you provide the healthiest lifestyle for your family. I also offer encouragement and guidance so that caregivers can feel confident arriving at their particular choices.
My medical interests are varied and enable me to care for a diverse patient population. I work tirelessly to support equality for all young people through many local and national organizations. I will continue to strive to help my patients and their parents feel at ease when discussing growth, nutrition, physical and emotional health during the many developmental stages from birth through late adolescence.
As an identical twin and the mother of three boys, including a set of twins, I am in a unique position to address the extraordinary needs of raising multiples, and I truly find fellowship with the many multiples and parents I see in my office. I also have a particular interest in children with learning and developmental challenges, and often meet with parents as a central resource for care coordination.
Outside work hours, I can be found at the gym, tending to my garden, or cooking and baking for my family. I, along with my husband who is also a pediatrician, enjoy long walks outdoors and exploring unfamiliar cultures abroad.
