  • I am a child Neurologist working in Indianapolis and central Indiana. I went to Purdue University, graduated with a degree in chemistry in 2000, followed by IU School of Medicine in 2004. I completely my residency training at IU in 2009, and have been in practice here since.

    I am board certified in headache medicine, and I founded the Riley Comprehensive Headache Center in 2010, the first and only of it's kind in Indiana. The Center offers medical, psychological, and procedural treatment for unusual and refractory pediatric headache patients throughout Indiana.

    I have had the honor of being chief of Child Neurology for Riley Hospital since 2018. I work with an amazing group of child neurologists, APPs, administrators, and staff who inspire me every day.
