About

Bio

I have been a Board Certified Pediatrician for almost 18 years in a small group practice in Texas. I have a special interest in Behavioral issues in children and adolescents. I am a single Mom with two sons in college and two in middle school - have juggled a busy job and family for years and like to share my ideas on handling life in this situation. Prior to entering medical school, I was an ER/Critical Care/Burn nurse for a number of years. I believe medicine is all about common sense and melding between holistic and medical treatment.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
