My Areas of Practice
I enjoy working with all children from birth to age 21 years. I like working with all ethnic backgrounds and I'm learning to speak Somali and Spanish. I also enjoy working with children with special health care needs and helping them learn to live a life focused on fun and achievement rather than focused on disease but at the same time keeping their chronic illness under good control. At Minneapolis Pediatric Clinic we have a medical home which enables families to focus on each other and we help them work through the medical health care maze to limit duplication and frustration with services. I have worked with children since 1987 but I always knew I wanted to work in pediatrics since I was 18 years old. Looking back over the years I know I made the right decision and feel very blessed to be able to work in this field.
