My desire to establish long-term professional relationships and make a positive difference in the lives of my patients and their parents prompted my interest in community-based practice." She adds, "My goal is to educate and empower parents and children about their physical and emotional well-being. I guide my patients about preventive approaches and the best ways to heal from sickness. I also find it gratifying to care for children with complex medical problems.The most humbling reward is seeing children for whom I've cared return to our practice as parents."
