I consider it an honor to be a physician, in particular, a pediatrician. I value the longitudinal relationships that I have had with patients and their families for over 25 years. Many of the new parents in my practice were original patients of mine. Perhaps, the greatest joy in my life has been my own children and grandchildren. It has been a pleasure sharing my parenting stories with the parents in my practice. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking with my husband, reading a good book on the beach, and playing with my grandson, Aidan.
