I found my passion for treating pediatric patients while completing my masters in Physician Assistant Studies from The George Washington University in Washington, DC. I have been fortunate enough to join a great team at Texas Children’s Hospital Urology department who share the same values and goals. I strive to deliver compassionate and comprehensive health care to my patients and their families. I am also passionate about providing families with the treatment and education for their pediatric urological conditions.

Clinical Interests:

My areas of clinical interest include treating patients with kidney stones and dysfunctional voiding including bedwetting (nocturnal enuresis), daytime wetting, urinary urgency, frequency, or recurrent urinary tract infections.
