About Me

I am an associate professor at the Wake Forest School of Medicine. I received my medical degree from New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, and completed my child neurology residency at Boston Children’s Hospital and my headache medicine fellowship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

My work as a pediatric neurologist centers on improving the lives of children and young adults with headache disorders through educating patients, parents and other healthcare professionals. I have been recognized as a "Best Doctor in America" since 2017. I am one of the few pediatric neurologists with additional fellowship training in headache medicine and received an honor of a "Member Spotlight" from the American Headache Society in March 2020 for advancing headache treatment through education.
