WHY DO YOU LOVE YOUR JOB?
I love science and I love parents. The medicine and physiology of kids are different than adults. Human development – of both body and mind – is amazing. I really enjoy walking parents through the development of the babies, children, and teens. I was a parent before I was a doctor, so I understand the importance of having a trusted ally guiding you through trying, scary, and exciting moments in a child’s health and development. I joined JMA Pediatrics because they take such great care of parents and children, and because it is a joy to work with such great team of staff and providers.
