As a Fellowship-trained, Board-certified Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrician, I have expertise and experience in children and adolescents with a broad spectrum of learning, behavioral, and developmental disabilities. I have been involved in the clinical care (diagnosis and treatment) of children with these conditions for over 17 years, and have practiced in academic and community settings. I have been primary investigator and co-investigator on numerous funded studies involving this population with funding from federal, private and international sources.

I have expertise in telehealth activities (both clinical and research) over 8 years, and have published manuscripts on the subject and been the medical director for a telehealth program of a large, regional integrated health system.
