I am a pediatrician, wife, and mother of two amazing children. Through the ups and downs of my life I have learned that beauty truly DOES come from within, positive change in life is POSSIBLE when we have support and encouragement from those around us, and each day holds the potential for something WONDERFUL. I hope that readers of this blog find knowledge and encouragement, mixed in with a bit of humor (because laughter very often IS the best medicine).

This is my personal blog. The opinions I express are my own. Reading this blog does not constitute a physician-patient relationship. I make every effort to provide accurate and evidence-based information. Any advice provided is general medical advice and may not be applicable to your specific situation. Always ask your doctor if you have any specific questions.
