Philosophy of Care

During medical school I was initially interested in being a pediatrician, but after a pediatric orthopedic medical mission in Africa my career path changed. I was drawn to the specialty because of the ability to make positive changes in children’s lives.

I started my orthopedic training in Canada and then moved to Australia for subspecialty training in cerebral palsy before returning to Boston. I feel fortunate to have had the experience of health care delivery from Canada, Australia and the United States and I blend all three systems into how I currently care for children and their families. Pediatric orthopedics is a unique specialty where we have the ability to make meaningful improvements for children and their families. The struggle to overcome pediatric disability is challenging but the rewards are tremendous.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, being active and enjoying nature around Boston. I have a passion for photography, following the Toronto Maple Leafs and good music.
