Biography

I grew up in Ohio and moved to Baltimore to do a dual degree in Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering at The Johns Hopkins University. Life led me to Cincinnati, where I got my M.D. degree from the University of Cincinnati. For the next 5 years I trained in child neurology at the University of Louisville and Kosair Children’s Hospital caring for kids with neurological conditions such as: brain injury, headaches, strokes, seizures, tics, autism, developmental delay, and cerebral palsy.
From 2016-2017, I did a specialty fellowship focusing on children with neuromuscular conditions including pain syndromes and muscular dystrophies. With family in the area and a love for the Dallas community, I’m excited to be a part of Texas Child Neurology!
