I spend my time getting to know my patients as individuals and understanding their specific needs so that I can deliver truly personalized care every step of the way. I am a strong advocate of proper nutrition and physical activity as the keys to a healthy and fulfilling life. I enjoy working with children and their parents to get started down the right path as early as possible.

I grew up just outside of Seattle, Washington, where I began nurturing a passion for both medicine and children at an early age. I was known as the "neighborhood babysitter" and as soon as I was able to drive, coached gymnastics at "The Little Gym." My admiration for my own doctor growing up was where my interest in medicine began and from the age of eleven, I knew I wanted to become a pediatrician.
My first visit to Winston-Salem was for a look at Wake Forest University. I was immediately taken with the city's beauty and charm. There was little doubt that I would ever stray too far from the East Coast again. I spent the next eight years in Winston as I completed both my undergraduate education and medical school at Wake Forest. I then spent my three years of residency training at Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina. I loved my time in Charlotte, but was thrilled to call Winston-Salem "home" once again after joining Twin City Pediatrics.
My family consists of my wonderful and supportive husband, Chris, our smiley and energetic son, Samuel (born August 2016), and my loveable dog, Cubbins. Outside of the office, I enjoy being with my family, reading, running, camping and hiking, baking, crafts and nearly any other outdoor project or adventure. You can also find me cheering on the Seattle Seahawks, the Carolina Panthers and the Demon Deacons. Life is crazy but I wouldn't change it for the world!
