I am Michigan girl through and through! Born and raised nearby, I went to Marian High School and then UofM for undergrad and med school. I loved my residency years at Childrens Hospital of Michigan and have been in private practice ever since. I have been very involved with the American Academy of Pediatrics as a journal editor and wrote for a few years as the Ask the Pediatrician columnist for The Detroit News. I have a great husband and big blended family with 5 kids. Needless to say I cook a lot and luckily I love it!
