Every Story Matters
“I thought I was going to be a civil engineer and build bridges. Then I went the complete opposite direction and enrolled in college as pre-med and a bio-chemistry major. Once I decided I wanted to be a physician, I knew all along that it was going to be to work with kids because frankly, they’re fun. And they tend to get better, not worse. I hope I can make them feel better if they have health problems, but at the same time, if I can put a smile on their face - it’s why I’m here.”
“At a very young age, when I was asked ‘What would you like to be when you grow up?’ my answer was always ‘To help people in the medical field.’ My mother passed away when I was a teenager and I took care of my younger brother. It was such a rewarding experience and that reinforced my desire to become a pediatric nurse and bring the same care to other children in need.”
“The most rewarding part of my job is working with an amazing team who share a common passion for helping improve the lives of children everywhere. We get to share all of the expertise and knowledge of the behavioral health team here at Nationwide Children’s Hospital with the community at large. I also love being able to bring this information to communities across the country for free so that anyone can have access to quality child mental health resources.”
