My Areas of Practice
I am a general pediatrician and enjoy caring for all children from birth to through age eighteen.  I know that a child is much more than what I see in the office, and try to understand them in the setting of their family and community. I respect the individual decisions of each family and I am proud to be their partner in advocating for the best interests of their child.  I speak Spanish fluently, which I learned through clinical work in Mexico and El Salvador, and enjoy working with Latino families.

Personal

I grew up in Iowa but spent much of my adult life in Washington, DC.  In my free time I enjoy playing the violin, reading, and traveling.  My husband and I have two children who bring us great joy and also demonstrate many challenges which enhance my skills as a pediatrician!
