After leaving Indiana for residency and fellowship, I returned to take care of children in the hospital setting. While I enjoyed subspecialty training in Endocrinology, my love for inpatient medicine and teaching drew me to the academic center at Riley. I enjoy the collaboration that occurs at Riley Hospital and feel fortunate to be part of such an amazing group of doctors, nurses, and staff. My passion is to teach residents and students as watching trainees learn and develop over time is particularly rewarding. My focus is to develop our nighttime medical education and create multi-specialty faculty case conferences. I live in the city with my husband and three awesome kids; we love to explore all the amazing things downtown Indy has to offer!
