About me

I have been progressively moving my way south my whole life. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I spent a good portion of my childhood in Richmond, Va. surrounded by its rich history, arts and culture. I completed my bachelor's degree at James Madison University, where I received a degree in biology and creative writing (I still aspire to be like Dr. William Carlos Williams!). I then headed to Washington D.C., a city I made my home for many years. After I completed my medical degree at George Washington University, I went on to complete the pediatric primary care residency tract at Children's National Medical Center.

Becoming a doctor was the culmination of a lifelong dream. During my medical school career, I was naturally drawn to pediatrics because of the deep personal relationships it creates for me as a provider.

About my practice

From personal experience with my children, I know that parenting does not come with a handbook, and I view my role as pediatrician to be a guide. I so enjoy getting to grow and develop meaningful relationships with my patients and their families over time.

I have a particular interest in children who have graduated from the NICU and who have complex medical needs. As an English-Spanish bilingual physician, working with diverse families brings vibrancy and depth to my practice.

How I thrive

I live with my husband, who is also a doctor, and our two children. As a foodie, you can often find me in my kitchen or in my garden. Having moved to Atlanta in 2016, I am having so much fun learning about a new "grow zone" for my garden. While cooking (especially if my kids are helping) is lots of fun, baking is my passion. I am always experimenting with new tools and techniques for baking delicious treats.

To work off all the good food I eat, I enjoy camping and hiking. I am also trying to become a golfer, but let's just say my golf game has a long way to go.
