What are your hobbies and interests outside of medicine?
In my time away from the hospital, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, and traveling.

Why did you choose to specialize in pediatric palliative care?
As a medical student, I was told that I have the heart of a pediatrician, and after my first day on my pediatric rotation, I knew what she meant and haven't looked back. I was drawn to palliative care because it was a specialty that would allow me to work as part of a team to care for the whole patient -- this includes his disease but also his emotional and spiritual well-being and that of his family. 

Tell us something interesting about yourself.
I completed 2 marathons the year that I turned 30 -- my motto was slow and steady crosses the finish line.

Why did you choose Peoria to practice medicine?
The dedication and support to Palliative Care from the hospital and the community. I feel that, as part of the Pediatric Supportive Care Team, I'll be able to have a positive impact on patients and their families.
