She specializes in ear, nose and throat, head and neck surgery. She has a special interest in infant feeding, childhood sleep and breathing disorders and sinus surgery.
Helping foster or restore functions such as hearing, speaking, feeding and breathing in children is incredibly rewarding, especially because I know that some of the work we do with parents and kids will help them in their lives for many decades.
She earned her medical degree at Yale School of Medicine and completed residency training in otorhinolaryngology-head and neck surgery and fellowship training in pediatric otolaryngology at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
