I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of disease of the throat and larynx (voicebox), including voice, swallowing and upper airway disorders. My expertise lies in the diagnosis and management of these disorders, whether in the office with endoscopy to evaluate the larynx or in the operating room to provide surgical treatment. I also have experience in the latest in office-based treatments for these disorders. I am also dedicated to researching new treatments and developing evidence-based best practices to manage these disorders. 

With a background in vocal performance and musical theatre, I understand how important voice, airway and swallowing is to identity and quality of life. It is my goal to learn about my patients as people and to work together with them to achieve their highest quality of life. My practice philosophy is collaborative and inclusive, and is always centered on the patient.
