Dr. Dickson graduated with a zoology degree from Miami University in Ohio, but turned her attention to humans when she attended Duke University School of Medicine. She completed her residency in Pediatrics at Seattle Children's Hospital, and joined the University of Michigan in 2011. She is board-certified in Pediatrics. She lives with her husband, three sweet children, and many pets in Ann Arbor. She finds great joy teaching in the medical school here and working with Pediatric residents as well. Clinically, she has an interest in oral health in the primary care setting. She loves seeing smiling, healthy children, but also loves helping families through hard times. In her free time, Dr. Dickson is trying to build a treehouse and learning to make pottery.
