I am excited for the opportunity to be a pediatrician at Oklahoma Pediatrics. For the past seven years, I have worked primarily with the medically under-served population in the Milwaukee area. During this time, I have had the opportunity to serve children that have experienced some of life’s biggest challenges, including limited financial resources, inadequate housing and chronic illnesses. Yet despite these challenges, the children are positive and still eager to learn and grow. Children, regardless of color, race or economic status are largely all the same in their desire to be seen as individuals and to be appreciated for their own unique ideas and talents. It is this resilience in children that drew me to the field of pediatrics.
