“My journey in medicine began at a young age when my first cousin was born with Spina Bifida. My many visits to her at Children’s Hospital as well as observing her home care and therapy sparked my interest in the field. My personal volleyball injuries then introduced me to the the specialty of podiatry. I came to realize how vast this specialty is from treating pediatrics to geriatrics and athletic injuries to wound care. My knowledge, compassion and patience have fostered my ability to treat my patients foot and ankle ailments, returning them to the lifestyle they attain.”
