I see myself as a community helper. My profession allows me the opportunity to take care of the children both routinely and in times of emergency needs. Beyond the practice, the parents and the children know that I am always there for them and the community. Working with so many unique people every day broadens my appreciation for others and I feel very humbled by the trust of so many families who have entrusted their children to my team of doctors and staff.
