“Raised by a single mother, I know first-hand the importance of being encouraged to be the very best that I could be. My mom devoted her life to teaching me that lesson and I have devoted mine to inspiring my daughter, as well as the youth that I work with to do the same. I believe that everyone has an inner greatness and the potential to lead a rich and abundant life if they are provided with the tools to do so.
When I practiced as a pediatrician, I saw so many teens that lack the self-confidence and strength to rise above peer pressure, bullying, domestic issues and the ever increasing challenges of living in today’s society. My goal is to provide teens with the knowledge that they do have choices and can achieve anything that they set out to do if they believe that they can.”
