Why did you choose to work at Rainbow Pediatric Center? I wanted a high quality family/doctor-owned office (rather than corporate-owned).


What do you enjoy about working with kids? I love their cheerful energy, and the fact that parents often devote more care to their children’s health than many people do for their own.


What is your area of expertise? I enjoy all ages and aspects of children’s health, from newborns through adolescents.


What do you enjoy doing when you are not at Rainbow Pediatrics? I love cooking, photography, appreciating my husband’s legendary gardening skills, and caring for our three cats.


If you only had 3 words to describe yourself what would they be? Kind, cheerful, straightforward.


Tell me about your family? I am married with 2 grown sons; my husband is a forester, my older son is a programmer for Facebook, and my younger is in college, majoring in game design.


One interesting fact about yourself? My husband and I keep 3 beehives.
