My Areas of Practice

I am honored and consider myself so very fortunate to care for the children of our community.  I believe that all children deserve high quality healthcare, which I strive to provide despite any differences in language, ethnicity or background.  It is very important to me that I educate my patients and their families thoughout the medical decision-making process, and that we formulate a treatment plan that we all agree upon.  I encourage questions (really!) because I want to ensure that everyone understands and feels confident in their care. 

My specialty is Pediatrics, where my areas of interest include infant development, atopic diseases (such as asthma and eczema), and promoting healthy, active lifestyles.  I also completed a fellowship in Pediatrics Sports Medicine, so of course I enjoy addressing athletic injuries too!

I grew up in Georgia but am learning to embrace the Minnesota climate!  My husband and I enjoy going to concerts, festivals, and new restaurants so the Twin Cities turned out to be an ideal place for us to settle down.  We have two beautiful daughters and a Boston Terrier to keep us busy at home.  When I do get a moment of spare time I love running, spending time outdoors, working on art projects and doing crossword puzzles.
