Additional Information

I am a primary care doctor trained in Pediatrics and Internal Medicine, with specialized training in the care of adolescents and young adults. I'm passionate about working in primary care because of the connection with my patients. Many of them have incredibly diverse experiences and life paths to learn from. My patients constantly humble me with their resilience and wisdom.

I feel privileged to be part of a fantastic team at CHA that is singularly focused on meeting the health needs of our patients, from the first days of life to the last. Our team has a particular strength in working with people who are struggling with mental health or substance use issues, as well as those transitioning to adulthood.

Outside of work, I enjoy hiking with my family, climbing trees with my young daughter, and playing the trumpet.
