About Me

As a certified nurse midwife at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I believe in helping women achieve their health and wellness goals. I specialize obstetrics and gynecological care for both pregnant and non-pregnant women, and assist with labour and delivery.

I treat women of all ages throughout their entire lifetime, and provide each of my patients with an individualized healthcare experience. It’s so rewarding to work with women and their families to promote overall health and wellness for pregnancies.

I love working in a multidisciplinary academic medical center. Having all of our service lines in one health system makes it easier for patients and providers to communicate and work together.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family.

    Cassandra is the best! I'm so happy I found her and that she's been my care provider throughout my pregnancy. She's so knowledgeable and I feel as though she listens to all of my concerns. The team @ Gahanna is wonderful overall!

    Cassandra is amazing. she is always great and remembers details about my family/life. even if I only see her once a year makes me feel special from the 20 plus people she probably sees in one day!

    She spent time in the room with me discussion my concerns. I never felt rushed. I felt somewhat judged when I said I planned to go off of birth control to pursue NFP. Part of it was that I have a limiting health condition, but I got the sense my personal wishes were looked down upon somewhat. She was wonderful up until that point and that is my only complaint.
