I grew up in Carrizo Springs, a small town in SW Texas. My parents were the town physicians, and I learned early on about the importance of a trusted patient-physician relationship. As a teen, I worked as a counselor at a camp for children with special needs. This inspired me to choose pediatrics. I pursued a fellowship in allergy & immunology as the field allowed me to build long-term relationships with my patients and provide care that can significantly impact their quality of life. Food allergy is a passion, and just happens to draw upon my hobby and love of cooking!
