About me

I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. I moved to Baltimore, Maryland, in 2006, where I completed both medical school and pediatrics residency at Johns Hopkins. Upon completion of my medical training in 2013, I moved to Denver to start my pediatrics career. I briefly worked at a small private practice for one year before joining Kaiser Permanente in September 2014. I decided to become a pediatrician when I was just 9 years old. Ironically, my inspiration to pursue pediatrics first came from experiences with my own pediatrician. Not only did her similarly spelled name help me imagine myself as a physician (perfect simplicity for a 9-year-old), but also her gentle demeanor instilled in me a sense of familiarity. Her ability to be relatable to both my parents and me was remarkable. Every day, I strive to embody these same characteristics, and I am grateful for the opportunity to do so. My inspiration now comes from my patients. I am continually impressed (and pleasantly surprised) by the honesty, innocence, happiness, and impressionability of each child I meet. To see how these qualities change as each child grows into adulthood is priceless. I simply could not imagine doing anything else!

About my practice

I believe strongly in both the value and importance of continuity of care and preventive medicine. I strive to develop long-term relationships with patients and their families, as I believe this best promotes patient-centered care. If my patients and their families do not readily identify me as the point-person for facilitating all aspects of their medical care, then I have not fulfilled my personal standard of medical practice. I believe having one primary care provider allows for optimal quality of medical care, engendering trust in patient-physician interactions. Well-child care, though seemingly simple and “routine,” is perhaps the most integral and rewarding aspect of my practice. With appropriate surveillance, I am able to promote healthy living by embracing childhood development, growth and maturation through education on safety, nutrition and physical activity. Though I aim to prevent disease whenever possible, illness is not always avoidable. I have expertise in treating a wide array of maladies from common pediatric conditions (such as asthma, ADHD, colds/flu, ear infections, constipation, abdominal pain, etc.) to more complex pediatric diseases (requiring coordination of care with multiple pediatric sub-specialists).

How I thrive

I stay well by emphasizing balance between my professional and personal endeavors. Stepping back and allowing yourself to reflect, even if only for a brief moment each day, can be the difference between mounting stress and absolute contentedness. I “step back” by reading a book from my favorite author Jane Austen, stretching muscles I forgot I had through yoga, and hiking through beautiful Colorado. Sometimes I need a little nudge to help me “step back,” for which I turn to the amazing friends I have made over a lifetime of education – from elementary school to medical school. Most importantly, I spend as much time as I can with my family!
