About Me

I have wanted to be a doctor for as long as I can remember—always with the plan to pursue pediatrics. I truly love being able to work with children and their families every day. Building long-term relationships with them inspires me to work hard and provide my patients with dedicated care.

One of my passions as a doctor is helping mothers to breastfeed their babies successfully, something that can be difficult. After realizing the lack of easy access that mothers have to breastfeeding medicine—which includes helping newborns correctly latch during breastfeeding—I became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant®(IBCLC®). I work with mothers who have twins and premature babies, as well as mothers who are preparing to return to work. With this certification, I am able to help many mothers and babies achieve the incredibly special experience of breastfeeding.

In addition to helping families with breastfeeding concerns, I offer a wide variety of pediatric services at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone. In particular, I focus on preventive care and assessing behavioral development in children, such as sleeping concerns and behavioral concerns in school-aged children. I see children from birth through their college years. I love working with such a diverse range of patients.
