I believe that one of the most important aspects of being a good doctor is communication. I strive to always follow through on patients’ questions and requests for more information, and to make sure that patients and any participating providers are all “in the loop” regarding the clinical plan.

In my spare time I deeply enjoy the outdoors, yoga, cooking and spending time with my husband and two children.

Clinical interest for patients

I love all aspects of general pediatrics, including both well and sick care. I enjoy taking care of patients from birth through their early adulthood.

Research interest for patients

My research is focused on immunization delivery. Specifically, I am involved in a number of intervention trials aimed at improving utilization of recommended vaccines among children and adolescents. I also have several projects that use theoretical modeling to simulate the impact of various immunization policies on vaccine utilization and cost effectiveness.
