About Me

As a physician assistant, I assist with cardiac surgery and transplants of the heart and lungs. I help treat patients with coronary artery disease, valvular disease and advanced ascending thoracic aneurysms. My background in internal medicine and critical care gives me a strong foundation of the knowledge and skills necessary for practicing at the highest levels of medicine. I am particularly interested in taking complex systems such as the cardiovascular system and simplifying them, whether it be for other care providers or for patients and their families. I do my best to communicate my knowledge of diagnoses and procedures to our patients while encouraging any and all questions. One of my main goals is to alleviate the concerns of patients and their families to ensure they have the best possible surgical experience.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because of the scope of my responsibilities. As Ohio State is one of the most renowned academic medical centers in the country, we are often presented with complex medical issues. I am proud to be a part of a dedicated team that is able to offer our patients the highest level of surgical interventions.

In my free time I enjoy photography, cooking, traveling, hiking and volunteering with underserved children. I am also a passionate equestrian, having ridden horses since I was four years old. I actively train and compete my horse in national competitions.
