I became a Pediatrician for one reason - I Love Kids! I enjoy watching children grow and finding solutions to their health care problems. I have a specific love for preemies and sick newborns. I have acquired expertise in this area with many years experience in Neonatology.

The reason I became a pediatric nurse practitioner is to become the voice for children that need their rights protected and taken care of. I feel privileged to be able to provide care and support to families and share in the challenges of raising happy healthy children. I am honored to serve the community I grew up in and love.

"I enjoy taking care of children because they are gifts from God. They are a heritage and the builders of tomorrow. It is an honor as well as a privilege to be instrumental in caring for a gift so precious. To every parent, I say, "Thanks."

Becoming a nurse practitioner has been a dream come true! Caring for children is what I love most about being a healthcare provider. Seeing the twinkle in their eye, the spring in their step, and watching them grow into young adults is a wonderful gift. I am also passionate about supporting parents through their child's illness and healthcare. It takes a family, and I am so happy to be a part of this family.
