“I love to teach; so becoming a pediatrician was enticing and seemed the ideal mix of science and compassion. I could envision caring for children and their families; being as helpful as possible. I had the good fortune to have incredible mentors beginning with my wise patients. I see myself as a capable, caring guide for children and their families as they navigate life. I am routinely humbled by the opportunities I’ve been given to care for children during challenging times and in maintaining good health.
“I have a keen interest in childhood development and relational health. I serve currently as the physician champion at Pediatrics Northwest for behavioral health integration. I am dedicated to developing systems that provide families with the right resources at the right time and thus serve on boards and committees. I have been the Medical Director for Reach Out and Read Washington State since 2007 and serve as a Medical Advisor for Reach Out and Read National.”
