Accepting new patients




As a runner, hiker, skier, and overall outdoors enthusiast, I know how important health is to one's well-being. As a pediatrician, my goal is to help children live their healthiest lives. Every child and family has different strengths and faces different challenges. I believe that partnering with families and truly listening to a family's needs will provide the best and safest care for children. I will provide high quality, up to date, and comprehensive care for your child, while working to establish trust with both my patients and their families. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't ever hesitate to ask, as you are the most important influence on your child's health. 

I grew up in Wisconsin and completed my residency training through Children's Wisconsin. After residency, I worked in New Orleans where my husband was completing his training. We live in Shorewood and are very excited to be back in Wisconsin! In our free time, we enjoy hiking the Kettle Moraine parks, paddle boarding, and exploring Milwaukee's food scene.
