  • Family Medicine
  • Nurse Practitioner What's this? A nurse practitioner is extensively trained to treat illness or disease and to prescribe medication to their patients. They work on teams with a licensed physician, but can treat patients with significant autonomy. Nurse practitioners work in a variety of settings, including primary care and various other medical and surgical specialties.

About Me

As a family medicine nurse practitioner, I specialize in taking care of patients with diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, mental health disorders and most acute and chronic conditions. I also specialize in pediatric medicine and women’s health.

I feel that as a nurse practitioner, I bring a hands-on, one-on-one approach to each patient by including them in decision making to help them make the best decisions for their health through health promotion and disease prevention.

I love taking care of the entire family. It brings me great joy to get to know my patients, to help them better understand their baseline health and to help them to improve their health in any way I can.

I think Ohio State is the best medical center in central Ohio and have been working here since 2002. I absolutely love being a Buckeye!

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending family time with my husband and two young children, traveling and running.
