Interests & Activities

My daughter Antonia was born a few years after I came to the United States. Ever since she was born I have felt privileged to be her mother. My daughter is a child with very special needs and taking care of her gave me a first-hand experience in dealing with the special education system. I volunteered in the school my daughter attended and was exposed to the day-to-day challenges in caring for children with special needs. Raising Antonia made me understand the great challenges that parents with special needs kids have to overcome. This experience has made me very sensitive to their needs.

My approach to care

I feel immense gratitude knowing my work improves or changes the quality of life for the children that I treat. I treat all my patients the way I treat my own child.
