Philosophy of Care
I enjoy working with patients and their parents to deliver individualized treatment plans, and appreciate the longterm relationships that I develop with families. When not working, I recharge at home with my husband and two young children. I spent my own childhood and adolescence in Davis, and after sixteen years away I was pleased to return home when I joined the UCD faculty in 2016.
