Where did you grow up?
Westminster, MD
Why did you become a doctor and why did you choose your specialty?
I enjoy working with people and have always been fascinated by the brain. As a child neurologist, I have the unique opportunity to intervene at a critical stage in a child’s development to provide treatment and improve the quality of life for patients and families coping with neurological disease.
How long have you practiced in the Washington, DC area and what do you like most about it?
I have practiced in the Washington, DC area since starting residency in 2006. I enjoy the diversity of patients, the proximity to the nation’s capital, and the vibrant scientific research community.
What do you most enjoy doing outside of your clinical practice, when you’re not working?
Spending time with family and friends, running, and singing.
