Biography

“Lifting up children and families to reach their greatest potential is the language of my heart.”

Dr. Mehta is board certified in pediatrics. She is skilled in nutrition, childhood obesity, adverse childhood experiences and toxic stress, early brain development, educational achievement, social determinants of health, health disparities, community pediatrics and advocacy.

She is an assistant professor at Atrium Health Levine Children's Hospital Medical Group, co-chair of the Pediatric BMI Committee and a physician champion at Carolinas Medical Legal Partnership. Additionally, she is a board member of Smart Start of Mecklenburg County and Communities in Schools Charlotte, an advisory board member of Healthy Weight Healthy Child Coalition and a former board member of the Mecklenburg County Medical Society.

Dr. Mehta is involved in research with the Carolinas Collaborative, a Duke Endowment funded collaborative through the American Academy of Pediatrics. The collaborative connects all the pediatric residency programs across North and South Carolina to focus on community health and advocacy, both in training residents and faculty, as well as working on programs around toxic stress and food insecurity.

From a young age, she spent time at a children's hospital while her younger brother was being treated for leukemia. She knew early on that she would take care of children in some capacity.

She feels honored to be invited into a family's life and watch their children grow up, learning together how to help support their child's social-emotional development, nourish their bodies through healthy habits and navigate difficult diagnoses and stressors with compassion.

Dr. Mehta received her medical degree at the University of Michigan and a master’s in public health at Harvard University.

Family is everything to Dr. Mehta and she and her husband have 2 beautiful children, a daughter and a son, who inspire them every day. She loves baking, cooking vegetarian dishes, dreaming up new recipes and hacking old recipes to make them healthier. Her family loves traveling, hiking, exploring nature and dancing, even in the middle of their living room in their pajamas.
