About Me

I am the oldest daughter of four (all girls), mother of three (all boys), and a pediatrician for 25 years. This experience molded me into the physician and person I am today. The first day of medical school, we were told that to practice medicine is not a right, but a privilege, and I am humbled to be able to serve in this capacity. My love of science and the fascination with how the body works got me interested in medicine, but it is the joy in the interaction with the children and their families that keeps me going. I believe the art of medicine, listening, compassion and humility, is just as important as the science. I joke with my prenatal classes about honing their important senses for parenting: common sense and a sense of humor. You will find that I try to incorporate those into my practice. I often discuss my findings and my reasoning for treatment choices and options out loud and involve you in my decision making. I typically give a quick age appropriate summary of my findings with the child directly. If I can get a laugh, smile or hug out of our visit, I've succeeded to some degree. In my time away from the office, I enjoy family time, sports, reading, the mountains and all outdoor adventures, photography and music.
