Why did you choose to practice pediatrics?
I have 4 children of my own and I love kids.

What is most rewarding about your work?
Being able to treat them when they are not feeling their best is the most rewarding part to me.

How does being a parent impact and/or help in the way you provide care and work with your patients and their families?
Being a parent myself helps me understand kids better as little people and how to react to them. I also know what it means to be a parent on the other end of that.

When working with your patients and their families, what is your approach?
The parents know the children the best so I try to listen to what they are saying. I try to listen and do a lot of educating and make sure they understand what I am saying.

How do you stay healthy and happy?
I have a farm and I help to homeschool my kids. We spend time playing on the farm with the animals and my kids.
