I joined the OSU Department of Family and Community Medicine in 2015 after completing the Family Medicine Residency (Urban Track) here at The Ohio State University. I will complete my MPH at Ohio State's College of Public Health in 2018. My primary practice location is Outpatient Care East where I see patients, precept our brilliant Urban Track residents and help run the OSU Transgender Primary Care Clinic. I'm especially passionate about improving the experience of transgender patients and other marginalized groups in our healthcare system and beyond. I love being involved with resident education and I also precept our interns and supervise our resident-run inpatient service at OSU East Hospital. I spend one day per week at Nationwide Children's where I provide primary care and contraception to adolescents at the Near East Side and Hilltop Primary Care Centers. I enjoy taking care of such a diverse, complex group of patients and contributing to the teaching mission of Ohio State.
