A Kansas City native, I am a board certified pediatrician who attended the University of Kansas School of Medicine and then completed my training at Childrens Mercy Hospital. My husband and I are the parents of three, twin girls and a little boy, who bring us incredible joy and never-ending wonder. I love watching children grow, helping parents care for their kids from birth to young adulthood, and believe it a privilege to be such an intimate part of my patients families. Both my children and my patients continue to teach me on a daily basis. I cant think of a better job. Keeping my patients healthy physically and emotionally as they grow, learn, and achieve has been very rewarding. I feel parents should play an integral part in diagnosis and treatment of their children and I promise to continue to learn, improve, and grow to keep up with new advancements in pediatric care.
