Q: What is your connection to our mission?

A: I have seen so many of my patients struggle due to the long wait times for getting a diagnosis of autism, so I wanted to become a part of the solution.

A: I love their brutal honesty. They say exactly what they mean to say. I love how they experience life to their fullest.

Q: What are your hobbies?

A: Reading, yoga, watching baseball

Q: What (or who) inspires you?

A: Parents – all of them. The stay-at-home parents, the parents that work outside the home, the single parents; they all amaze me with how they manage to juggle everything.

Q: Tell us about your family. Any children? What about pets?

A: I am married with three children, Lane (13), Taylor (11), and Peyton (8). We have two dogs, Jase and TJ, and 4 cats!
