I’m fortunate to treat patients at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center for Women’s Health, a multidisciplinary facility focused on providing care through every stage of a woman’s life. I provide women with the tools they need to live a healthy and productive life, specializing in primary and basic gynecological care for women ages 18 – 64. I also assist with endocrinology patients, focusing on thyroid disease and bone health. Currently, I’m in the process of obtaining a certificate for obesity management. When I see patients, my focus is to truly listen to them and provide the best individualized care.
My medical career started when I was a nurse for women’s health at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center. I had the privilege of providing care to a diverse population of women, but found that there was lack of primary care among most patients. During pregnancy, most of the women received quality prenatal care; however, many did not have a provider to follow up with for preventive health measures. I chose to specialize in primary care to work more with this population of women, so that they have access to personalized wellness and preventive care. My experience as a nurse taught me the benefits of therapeutic communication, prioritizing the physical, mental and emotional health of my patients, to better understand how I can best help these individuals.
At the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center, I take pride in my roles on the Center for Women’s Health Continuing Medical Education planning committee and the anti-racism committee.
I’m an extremely active person who prefers to live life on the go. When I’m not at work, I enjoy trying new workouts, traveling and cooking new recipes for my family. In my spare time, I love to listen to medical podcasts to keep up to date with the latest medical advice for my patients and to continue growing as a provider.
