Maeville Pediatrics

The importance of community

I want to create a pediatric practice that truly feels like a home.  From this desire to create a family style medical practice came the name ‘Maeville’.

After almost a decade in medical school and residency, I felt utterly confident at diagnosing sick kids, monitoring development, and coaching other parents along their parenting journey.  So when the time came for me to become a mom, I just knew I was ready.  My rigorous educational training took me through the full spectrum of pediatric care…breastfeeding, starting solids, ear infections and even exotic diseases that may require hospitalization… but it wasn’t until becoming a mom and working through the intricacies of family life/sleep deprivation/work demands and postpartum hormonal changes that I began to understand the complexities of parenting.  Specifically, with the birth of my eldest son, I stepped knee deep into the delicate role of motherhood and was faced with challenges that have encouraged me to develop a community for parents to thrive, be heard and grow together.  

For the longest time, I felt alone in my mothering.  The truth is, many parents find themselves in this position.  Due to the overload of information online, busier schedules and more disconnection in our society, it’s easy to see why so many parents are stressed and searching for community.  I want to create a pediatric practice that truly feels like a home.  From this desire to create a family style medical practice came the name ‘Maeville’.  In this ‘village’, I can promise you and your children will be seen and heard.  I want to empower my parents to know how to tackle the common conditions their children may face but also to know when and how to reach out for help.
