Q: What is your connection to our mission?
A: Being a pediatrician for over a decade, I have had the opportunity to witness firsthand the amazing strengths as well as the difficult obstacles present in the lives of children with autism and other neurodevelopmental differences. I have been humbled to learn from them and to be a part of each family’s journey. I am ready to assist even more families in reaching their goals!
Q: Why do you love helping children?
A: It is an honor to watch children develop into unique beings with their own interests and talents! Helping to guide them to a healthy, successful life is very rewarding.
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: I feel most at home in nature. I love kayaking, paddle boarding and working with flowers, fruits and veggies in my garden!
Q: Who or What inspires you ?
A: My daughter helps make me a better person every day! She was premature – only 4 lbs. 14 oz. when she was born. Watching her find so much excitement in everyday life has been very inspirational!
Q: Tell us about your family. Any children? What about pets?
A: I am fortunate to have a large extended family with lots of kids!
