About Me

I treat children with cancer and blood disorders, such as anemia and sickle cell disease. When families come in, there is understandably a huge amount of anxiety. I try to spend a lot of time with them and discuss what we know, what we need to find out, and how we plan to care for their children. My goal is to make it the least scary as possible for both the children and the parents/caregivers while providing the best care. Even in the setting of severe illness, interacting with children is uplifting and extremely rewarding. Children truly demonstrate the resilience of the human spirit. What I love most about my job is having relationships with children and seeing them grow; it is a wonderful experience.

Clinical Focus and Research
My Research Interests

I participate in clinical research in a variety of blood disorders including sickle cell disease, immune thrombocytopenia and bone marrow failure. Through these studies, I hope to improve our ability to care for children with blood disorders. I have an interest in medications and new ways to treat sickle cell disease, but also study quality of life and outcomes of other blood disorders. I have found that children and parents find participating in research to be incredibly rewarding.
