About Me

I evaluate children with multiple medical issues to determine if there is an underlying genetic cause. Most of the patients I see have developmental delays and/or birth defects. We take a detailed family history and try to find out if other family members are affected. Often, we need to order genetic testing to confirm a diagnosis.

My main areas of expertise and research are inborn errors of metabolism and congenital disorders of glycosylation. 

I knew early in life that I wanted to be a doctor, and decided I wanted to become a geneticist when I was about 15 years old. I’ve always enjoyed figuring things out, and that’s what you do in genetics every day. I always wanted to work with kids. You advocate for them, but at the same time, they are very strong and can overcome anything. I’m really passionate about what I do and I really enjoy my specialty. I can’t imagine myself doing anything else. It brings me joy to be able to help families and provide them with answers. 

In my free time, I love going to the beach, and I like to travel and learn about new cultures.
