Bio
As director of CHKD's Healthy You For Life initiative, Dr. Williams thoroughly enjoys being a pediatrician and attempts to convey that to her patients with each appointment. It's not unusual for her to draw pictures, sing, or dance as a way to answer the many and varied questions of some of her patients.

An Ohio native, Dr. Williams understands and appreciates that parents are the experts of their children and feels she has as much to learn from them as they do from her. She sees her role as their pediatrician is to serve as a "trusty sidekick" to help them traverse their current medical challenge, using her "expert" knowledge in pediatrics, nutrition, and weight management to help them down their path.
