About Me

There is no greater joy than seeing a family ride through a really challenging period in their life and come through on the other end with an extraordinarily positive view of everything that’s happened, and a child who is ultimately healthy and happy and productive and an integrated part of their family’s life.

​This provider is part of Lurie Children’s & Rush: Advancing Children’s Health, a clinical affiliation dedicated to providing high-quality pediatric specialty care to children. Learn more.
