Why did you choose Valley Children's Pediatric Residency Program?
While interviewing at Valley Children's, it was hard for me to tell whether everyone I met was impressed by me as an applicant or if they were just incredibly kind. The Valley Children's residency program in its entirety is everything I hoped to find. The program's emphasis on wellness and resident success was a large part of my decision. I am confident that Valley Children's will make me an incredible and strong pediatrician and I am eager to be a part of the pediatric family.

Hobbies: I love to spend my free time outdoors. I enjoy the beach, hiking, and going on long doggie walks! I enjoy traveling and experiencing new things and foods!

Care Philosophy: Kids are resilient. They have an energy that inspires me and will continue to inspire me as I further my education. Being a pediatrician gives me the privilege to cater to a vulnerable population who need strong advocates to represent them. Many kids have the opportunity to live long and fruitful lives, and my care philosophy is shaped through prevention and providing access to resources of early intervention.
