About Me

As a general pediatrician, I have the amazing privilege of caring for children from birth to young adulthood. I enjoy partnering with families through the many adventures of parenthood, whether it’s surviving the sleep-deprived newborn period, navigating asthma management in elementary school, or supporting their teen to make healthy choices as they discover their own path. My goal is to help each patient and their family make informed health decisions that align with their core values and strengths. I treat mind and body together and particularly love fostering resilience in children with autism, ADHD, depression and anxiety. Outside of work, you can find me enjoying live music in downtown Durham with my husband and two girls.
