Some fun facts:
My family moved to the United States from Kerala, India when I was 5 years old. I am conversant in Malayalam.

I met my husband while I was in medical school. We now live in Spotsylvania, VA.
We have two sassy daughters who keep us on our toes every moment!
We love hanging out with our large extended family/friends that live in the DC/VA/MD area.
I am one of the founding board members of the Doctor Yum Project, a local non-profit whose mission is to bridge the link between food and your health.
My favorite pastimes are cooking, gardening, traveling and experiencing different cultures with my family.
As far as I can remember I have always wanted to be a pediatrician. I am honored to have the opportunity to care for our future when they are well and sick- it is very humbling. My passion is promoting preventative care and nutritional counselling for my patients and their families in a supportive and sensitive manner.
I am happily accepting new patients and look forward to meeting you
