Ever since I was a little girl I knew I was going to work with kids. Their joy, laughter and the challenges of pediatrics bring so much happiness to my life. I find my true passion lies in preventive medicine with a focus on nutrition and physical activity. That’s how I knew that pediatric medicine would be, the best place for me to fulfill my passions and further develop my talents. Working with families as a unit and a team is best served holistically at Mountain Park Health Center through the entire care team, including providers, dietitians, behavioral health specialists and the child’s family.
Outside of the office, I practice what I preach and maintain an active lifestyle swimming, biking, running and hiking. My husband and I are actively training for our first full Ironman triathlon. We have three fur children and look forward to welcoming our own children someday.
