Certification: American Academy of Pediatrics, Pediatric Endocrinology
Medical Association Memberships: Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Washington State Medical Association, Pierce County Medical Society and Lawson Wilkins Pediatric Endocrine Society.
Practice Philosophy: I feel it is my responsibility to keep kids safe and to explain clearly to families why we are recommending various treatment options. We can be true partners with parents and their children by teaching as we provide care. As your child's pediatrician, I have the responsibility to provide appropriate care while considering the cost to the families. I chose pediatric medicine because I love children; their energy and natural curiosity. I have always found learning the scientific basis of problems fulfilling. The combination of pediatrics and endocrinology to me is the perfect mix.
