Special Interests & Why I Love What I Do

I definitely chose the right specialty. I love that I can do intradermal skin testing to find out what's at the root of a patients allergic symptoms and then I can formulate the right combination of treatments. It's rewarding to know that I'm relieving not only the patient's pain and discomfort but also the client's. I also enjoy using technology, like the video otoscope, to identify middle ear problems. And I find that treating skin and ear infections is very satisfying. I especially enjoy complicated autoimmune skin diseases and dermatohistopathology.

Personal

I love to travel, I enjoy gardening and I prefer being outside as much as possible. Most of all I enjoy spending time with my husband and my three children.
