Dr. Townsend believes that being a pediatrician is one of the best jobs in the world. She enjoys working with families as partners in finding the best course of treatment for all their children’s medical needs from infancy to adolescence. She feels confident treating a wide range of conditions from newborn care to infectious diseases, dermatology to asthma. Striving to positively improve the quality of lives of families and communities is a responsibility she takes very seriously. When she isn’t working in the clinic or hospital, she loves spending time with her husband and four beautiful children. Their various sporting, church and music activities keep her hopping, but when she has a spare minute, she loves reading, enjoying the beauty of the outdoors and exploring new places.
