In addition to being board certified in Pediatrics, I am an international board-certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) and have extensive experience in lactation in both the hospital setting and outpatient areas.  I enjoy teaching families and have worked as a Perinatal Educator for many years, teaching breastfeeding classes and newborn care.  My special interests include asthma education, health promotion, and breastfeeding support.

I grew up in Ft. Wayne and completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing at Indiana University School of Nursing.  I have practiced in Pediatrics for my entire career, starting in the NICU at Riley Children's hospital.  After moving to Chicago, I worked in both inpatient and outpatient pediatric settings and then completed a Master's degree in Parent-Child Health Nursing from Northern Illinois University.  After returning to Indianapolis, I focused on pediatric primary care and completed a post-Master's Pediatric Nurse Practitioner program at IU School of Nursing.

My husband and I live here in Fishers, and we have three great sons and a beautiful daughter that we are very proud of.  In my free time, I enjoy spending time with our children's activities, including soccer and percussion/marching band, as well as traveling, theater, music, and IU sports!
