As a pediatric epileptologist, I specialize in treating patients with complex, often difficult to control, epilepsy. One of my fantastic mentors mantras is I never give up, and I have adopted that approach. I will work systematically and thoroughly to review your childs history and develop a treatment plan that is collaborative and tailored to your child and your familys needs. The best part of my job is seeing a patient in clinic who is seizure-free and living a full life. In my time off, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter Zoe. As recent transplants from California, we like to explore new hikes and try new restaurants and are always looking for recommendations! ¡Hablo español también!
