I grew up in a rural community in Central Pennsylvania then pursued my undergraduate and medical education in New Jersey. My husband and I completed our residencies in Pittsburgh. I have lived in Lancaster since 2002 and love the community, the small town vibe, and the access to big cities. I enjoy partnering with families to educate them about health topics, safety, immunizations, and growth and development. I love watching children and families grow and change over time. Outside of the office, I am an avid reader, love to cook, travel and enjoy spending time with my family and numerous pets. I enjoy tinkering in my garden and pond. My husband is an emergency medicine physician. We have two adult (gulp!) children, a son and a daughter.
