Since I can recall, I have wanted to be a pediatrician. I am humbled by families inviting me to partner with them to support their child’s development and well-being. Throughout a career which has included policy development at the local, state and national level; conducting research on child health outcomes; and working with health systems to create new models of care delivery, the constant thread of being a primary care pediatrician has reminded me what I love most about this work—helping to improve the lives of children. I moved to Milwaukee with my husband and son in 2011 from TN. Although the climate is undoubtedly cooler, the community’s reception of us has been quite warm. We are delighted to add the Brewers, Packers, Bucks and Admirals to our sports enthusiast family!
