My journey began on Instagram where I sought to create a space to share my insights as a Pediatrician. As my account evolved, I knew I had the unique opportunity to reach more families. That was when The Pedsdoctalk Podcast was born.

As adults, a large part of our health habits begins in childhood. Having healthy sleep habits, a positive relationship with food, and managing stress effectively play a huge role in our overall health. My mission is to help parents understand how they can implement strategies to help foster healthy habits from a young age to raise well-adjusted children.
