During her residency, she earned the Resident Research award, Golden Bone Excellence in Teaching award, and the Open Growth Plate Excellence in Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery award – two years in a row. She has also completed 10 surgical mission trips worldwide, including Mexico, India, Guatemala, Ecuador, and Haiti. Her time working with these diverse populations helped to further grow her dedication to service for underserved communities.

She is thrilled to be joining Dr. Anderson and the OrthoHouston team.
