Tell us a little about yourself.
My training experience at CHOP was so wonderful, I was thrilled to stay on as an attending physician. Altogether, I’ve been here for 16 years.
What excites you about the King of Prussia Hospital?
I don’t live too far from King of Prussia, and I am excited about taking care of patients in the community in which I live. I was excited to be asked to be part of planning for the new hospital, and seeing the design evolve has been amazing. Every aspect has been designed to be comfortable and fun for kids and their families. I also look forward to working in a smaller, more close-knit team environment. I also see working at King of Prussia Hospital as an opportunity to develop a greater connection with my colleagues in the community and to collaborate in the care of our mutual patients.
What do you do for fun outside of work?
I use my spare time to take care of my two busy kids, who are 19 months and 4 years old. I enjoy spending time at the beach when we can get away. I also like outdoor activities like jogging and cycling in my spare time.
