Chief Resident Pediatrics MetroHealth


MetroHealth Medical Center- Ohio


I received my medical education from Michigan State University. My residency was at MetroHealth in Cleveland. I served one year as the Chief Resident and another two years at MetroHealth in their Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.

My life’s dream was to become a pediatrician. Kids get sick quickly, but they also get better quickly. They never have self-inflicted illnesses and kids are resilient. As I received my medical training, I realized I wanted to be a pediatric hospitalist instead of a pediatrician. I wanted to be in the hospital, performing procedures and helping acutely ill children.

I am from the Midwest and I knew I wanted to settle in the Midwest. I like how hard-working, low-key and friendly the people are in this area. I also love roller coasters, so I was excited to practice in the place that is home to Cedar Point! I like that Firelands has the only non-affiliated pediatric
unit between Toledo and Cleveland. Because of the nonaffiliation,

I am able to send children to the institution where they can receive the best care and to the best sub-specialist I can find if they cannot be treated at Firelands. I like having the autonomy to make the best decisions for our patients and their families. Next year, we are adding licensing as a Level II Nursery, and that will mean that we can keep even more babies and families together.
