I chose Pediatrics because it is a pleasure and an honor to care for children from newborn to adolescence, and I am passionate about preventive care. I want to help provide the best guidance for both well and sick children, and I believe in patient education and evidence based medicine. Each patient is unique, and I work to find out what works best for each one while embracing cultural differences. I love to watch my patients grow and thrive!

While she is an “island girl,” she enjoys football and basketball in Central Texas!
