I love sharing my passion for child psychiatry with trainees and students, as it is such an amazing field of practice.  Our department is ever growing and maturing, and I feel fortunate to work with such an incredible group of faculty and trainees who are dedicated to teaching, continued education, and their clinical work.  It has been my honor to help the child fellowship get off the ground, and I am delighted in the success of our fellows thus far!

I finished my fellowship in 2014 and remember well what it is like to be a resident and fellow.  I enjoy teaching and helping each of our fellows learn the “ins and outs” of Child Psychiatry.  I am primarily outpatient and will be supervising some of your outpatient clinics.  I am also the associate program director.  We would be very excited to have you come look at our program.  I think you will love our wonderful city and our awesome faculty.

I have been with the now Prisma Health System since 1999.  I served our health system and community as a High School Athletic Trainer and later moved to a clinical role.  Through that experience, I enjoyed seeing the excitement and passion of new physicians and I knew I wanted to be a part of that.  My clinical background gives me a different perspective to share and to help the fellow succeed.
