Special Interests

As a parent of a child with allergies and asthma, I understand the stresses of managing these conditions. My hope is to empower the parent and child towards success. My special Interests include atopic dermatitis and contact dermatitis. In managing atopic dermatitis, I implement a holistic approach incorporating skin care, diet, behavior modifications, and avoidance of allergens. My other areas of interest include food allergy, anaphylaxis, and environmental allergies, particularly as they relate to skin presentation.
