As a pediatrician, I get to play an integral role in shaping patients to be the best and most healthy they can be, setting a good foundation for the future while working with parents to have a family-centered model of care.

I have always loved going to school and learning in particular about science and math. My love for being around and working with children began when I was young as my mom ran an in- home daycare where I was able to help out. I realized the perfect fit for these interests was to pursue a career in pediatrics.  I have been blessed with many great mentors during my time at Simpson College, the University of Iowa, and Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital who have always encouraged me to be the best person I can be. I know that I fit best as a general pediatrician, getting to see children for a variety of issues while watching them grow and develop. I like that medicine is an evolving field that keeps us on our toes with lifelong learning, and I do my best to stay up-to-date with new recommendations in order to do what is best for the patient rather than continuing something because it is what has always been done in the past.

Areas Of Interest

I enjoy all general pediatric issues, but have particular interest in breastfeeding and infant care as well as behavioral issues in school-age children and teenagers.

My husband and I are both Iowa natives who went to Cleveland for residency and realized how much we love and missed home.  We are very excited to be back in the "true Midwest."  We have a beautiful, smart, fun, and sassy little girl, as well as a handsome and energetic black lab. I enjoy hanging out with family and friends, going to the park, taking the dog on a walk, reading, and riding a bicycle, among other things.  I like to garden and attempt to be crafty!
