About Me

I am a pediatric hematologist/oncologist at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. I treat children with a variety of oncology and hematology issues including childhood leukemia, solid tumors, sickle cell anemia and benign hematologic conditions such as anemia.

Growing up, my own pediatrician played an important role in my life and ultimately inspired me to pursue a career in pediatric medicine. Now, I am paying it forward by making a difference in the lives of my patients and their families.
 
At Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, we form a close bond with the children we are treating and their caregivers, and truly become a part of their families. We not only provide the necessary medical care, but also support them in many ways throughout their journey. When I see the children I care for feeling better and able to enjoy normal childhood activities, it makes all of the hard work worth it. 
In addition to providing patient care, I also serve as co-chair of the Diversity Special Interest Group of the American Society of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology and am the vice chair of the Children's Oncology Group's Pediatric Match sub-protocol H study.
