“Love the doctors and nurses here at Southdale Peds. In fact, I have recommended it to all my friends and about five more families are coming here. We moved to Plymouth but I'll keep coming here as long as I can!”
“We have had great experience with all of the doctors we've seen here. I especially appreciate the great care our children have received as babies when two of them needed more critical care and hospital stays. I also really appreciate the nurse line and after hours nurse connection. This is so important to me, as it got me to take my seven week old baby into Children's Hospital right away. Thank you for all you do.”
I work part-time Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday in the Edina location and also spend time creating & reviewing patient educational materials as one of the medical directors for our group. I live in Southwest Minneapolis with my husband, 3 young children and a very energetic dog. I feel a good sense of balance between my home and work life and am thankful to have time to care for my family while helping care for yours. In my spare time I enjoy walking with my dog & neighbors, singing in a choir with my husband, stopping at garage sales and thrift shops, cooking healthy meals with our farmshare veggies, and trying to watch Antiques Roadshow.
The greatest enjoyment I have as a pediatrician is experiencing the diversity in individual patients and families. I believe in addressing the needs of the whole child—emotional, social, academic, developmental and medical. Conversations about the community resources, healthy nutrition, and family support are vital for your child’s complete care.
