Dr. Singh’s professional and personal interests entwine as supporting youth is what she is most passionate about and is the reason why she chose pediatrics as a specialty. Caring for the tiniest of the patients and their families, along with mentoring youth as they navigate their career path keeps me going.

In her free time, Dr. Singh enjoys cooking, painting, travelling, hiking, volunteering with local organizations, spending time with her family while spoiling her four legged baby Chester.
