What are your hobbies and interests outside of medicine?
I have two young children so when I' not working we usually like to go to places like the zoo or the children's museum. We also like hiking, biking and being outdoors as much as we can.

Why did you want to become a pediatric hospitalist?I enjoy caring for children and their families in the hospital because it is immensely satisfying helping them through what is often a stressful and difficult time in their lives.

I hope that by working together we can make their hospital stay the best it can be.

Tell us something interesting about yourself.
I once tried to bike across the state of Indiana where I grew up, but only made it halfway!

Why did you choose Peoria to practice medicine?
When I interviewed here, I didn't know much about Peoria. The hospital, the people and the city all surprised me with how welcoming everyone was and how much there was to do especially for families.

Is there anything else you want the community and families to know?
I'm looking forward to meeting people and getting to know the area.
