Dr. Ballard moved to Norfolk from her native Michigan in 2002 to complete her training in general pediatrics at CHKD. She and her husband fell in love with the area and enjoy spending time with their two daughters at the local beaches, zoo, museums, and parks.

Dr. Ballard most enjoys getting to know families over time, from the first days in the hospital, to college graduation, and all the exciting growth and development in between. She also welcomes military and other new families to the region with an understanding that the children need a solid medical home, even during times of transition.

Dr. Ballard works at the Suffolk location for Tidewater Children's Associates.
