Personal

As a pediatrician, I work with young people from babyhood to young adulthood. To me, preventing sickness is as important as curing it. Many parents face hard times, such as serious diseases, separation from loved ones, mental illness or drug abuse. I like to help families help their kids to be healthy and strong even when they are facing those challenges. I love to work in Haiti and Latin America because it increases my skills and understanding. I have worked in many locations in Haiti, where I lived for a year during medical school.  I am on the advisory board of Li, Li, Li Read! (http://www.lililiread.org), an organization that provides comfort to children living in tent camps in Port-au-Prince, promotes literacy, and provides jobs to earthquake survivors.  I volunteer as a pediatrician for Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.  When I am not working, I read, hike and travel with my husband and my children.
