I was born an Air Force military brat; my family traveled the world. Those early experiences helped to shape and grow my heart for service and community health. I consider myself having grown up in Akron, Ohio and shortly after high school I made my way down 71 South to The Ohio State University to attend college on a full scholarship.
I started in the OSU Department of Family and Community Medicine shortly after graduating from their Urban Track Residency Program in June 2018. I currently practice at OSU Outpatient Care East and spend my time developing clinical health relationships with patients on a daily basis in addition to working with medical students.
Research, Education and Clinical Interests
A smart person once said that the health of the individual closely mirrors that of the surrounding community. It is with this sentiment that I am able to individually engage, diagnose, and treat conditions in our vulnerable patient populations all the while understanding the context of how those conditions came to evolve. My current research centers around African American women and barriers to increasing physical activity and what clinicians can do to help address these issues.
