Background

I completed my family medicine residency training at University Hospitals Case Medical Center and my preventive medicine residency training at Case Western Reserve University before joining The Ohio State University Department of Family Medicine in 2017 as a clinical assistant professor of family medicine. I currently practice at OSU CarePoint East. I am interested in working with urban underserved communities and teaching medical students and residents. Additionally, I am interested in health policy and public health issues that directly impact urban underserved communities such as community violence and obesity.
