I was born and raised in Nigeria. My family moved to the United States in 2001 and I called Milwaukee home for about 13 years, completing high school, college, medical school and my residency training there. My husband's love of the outdoors and the desire for a healthier and more active lifestyle led us here to Colorado. My husband and I are blessed and frequently challenged by our three young children.
I feel very honored to be involved with children at home and at work. I often say that being a doctor makes me a better mom and being a mom makes me a better pediatrician. It is a never-ending learning experience that I find so fulfilling. I particularly enjoy learning from other parents. I look forward to working with my patients and their families to provide primary care that empowers them with knowledge and confidence to make the best health and lifestyle decisions for themselves and their families. I enjoy performing minor procedures like laceration repairs and insertion/removal of Nexplanon implants.
I feel the most alive when I am encouraging and supporting others (or at least trying to). However, to be able to do so I have to be in a good state of emotional and physical health. Meditating, trying to eat healthy and getting as much rest as I can all help me feel my best so I can continue learning how to be a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and physician.
