My husband Ken and I have been fortunate to make Chicagoland our home. We have enjoyed exploring the city since moving to Chicago from Cincinnati and I have enjoyed finding my professional home with Southwest Pediatrics. I have been honored with the ability to care for such wonderful children and families. My interests include injury prevention, menstrual problems, mental health concerns, healthy eating, exercise and sports injuries. When I am not at work, you’ll likely find me running with my golden lab, Sylar, playing volleyball and softball or watching my favorite teams play.
