My passion for Rheumatology began when I was merely a teenager and I had the incredible opportunity to shadow my mother’s rheumatologist. I made the decision then to pursue a career in Rheumatology. I strive to provide high-quality, comprehensive, and compassionate care, placing my patients at the forefront of every encounter. I practice general Rheumatology, but I hold personal interests in the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, seronegative spondyloarthropathies, and crystal arthropathies such as gout.
I am a Bucks County native, which is where I currently reside with my husband, Michael, and our miniature long-haired dachshund, Sophie. Outside of medicine, I am an avid dancer, training, performing, and competing regularly in the genres of tap, jazz, ballroom, and Latin dance. I am a huge Philly sports fan and I also enjoy traveling, exercising, and reading.
