Background

I joined The Ohio State University's Department of Family Medicine in November 2014 after having spent my first three years out of residency in private practice with the Licking Memorial Health System. I came back to OSU to be more involved in teaching and to work closer to where I live in New Albany.

I see patients exclusively at the OSU Family Medicine office at Healthy New Albany, but I am also involved with medical student education, especially of third-year medical students during their family medicine clerkship. I serve as the unit director for family medicine in that role, and also help to facilitate third-year students during their small group learning. I am also the lead physician for medical student education here in New Albany.

I have a passion for preventive medicine, especially vaccinations. I have developed community education programs on vaccinations that I have given here in New Albany.
