Board Certifications

American Board of Pediatrics


Medical School: University College Dublin School of Medicine

Residency: State University of New York at Buffalo

Fellowship: Emory University


During Pediatric residency, Dr. Sooknarine discovered the field of Child Abuse Pediatrics. This sub-specialty was not routinely covered in her residency curriculum, so she developed a resident elective with the help of the local Child Advocacy Center. She is originally from the Caribbean and during her fellowship, she spent a few years working in the field of Child Maltreatment in Trinidad and Tobago. She continues to mentor and coordinate training for Trinidadian doctors who work with maltreated children.

In her spare time, Dr. Sooknarine enjoys traveling and experiencing different cultures. She still has quite a long bucket list of places to visit but is not deterred by the number.

A Note from Dr. Sooknarine
"CHKD was where some of my teaching attendings trained, so it was a natural choice to become part of this extended family."
