Personal

As a pediatrician, I've had the honor of witnessing the magic of children's' abilities to heal and grow. I enjoy working with children and their families regarding developmental delays, genetic syndromes and autism spectrum disorders. The other part of my practice, involves working with children and families regarding school related problems such as ADHD and/or Learning Disabilities.  I am particularly focused on helping children achieve school success as well as a healthy respect for their own self-worth in many areas of their lives. I am blessed to live with my family, including my twin son and daughter, near Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. We enjoy hiking near Lake Superior, taekwondo, biking, tennis, and family time.
