I have been a partner at La Grange Pediatrics since 1984. I received a bachelor's degree in psychology in 1977 from Northwestern University. I graduated from Loyola University's Stritch School of Medicine in 1980 and completed my pediatric residency training at the University of Chicago. It has been an honor to work at La Grange Pediatrics, the oldest pediatric practice in the western suburbs, established in the 1920s by Dr. Norman Welford.
I was born and raised on the far South Side of Chicago, and have loved living in the La Grange community over the years. I have come to know and care for many wonderful families here.
I love helping parents care for their kids from birth to young adulthood. I can't think of a better job. Keeping my patients healthy physically and emotionally as they grow, learn, and achieve has been very rewarding.
