“My purpose is to help children stay healthy and to be there to guide families in times of need.”
Healing patients and being part of the lives of the families I care for is my passion. I dreamt of being a pediatrician as a child. When I was deciding on a specialty, I noticed that children, even when very ill, love to play and know how to capture the essence of each day. Children never give up. As my own children will attest, I am very dedicated to being a pediatrician and am very glad I chose this as my profession. I am committed to improving the status of health care in our country. I have been very involved in The Everett Clinic administration and leadership.
Why The Everett Clinic?
I joined The Everett Clinic because I saw this organization as one that employed physicians who were compassionate and caring and who provided excellent care to their patients. Every physician I work with is dedicated to caring for people and improving the health of our county. I enjoy the camaraderie with my colleagues as well.
