About Me

I’m an allergy and immunology physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. I chose this specialty because of the opportunity to treat a variety of people. I love that I can help improve a patient’s quality of life by treating routine conditions like seasonal allergies and food-related symptoms, while also getting to diagnose and care for patients with recurrent infections and complex immunological disorders.

My patients can expect inclusive, individualized and compassionate care when they come to see me. I ensure each patient understands all their options thoroughly before proceeding with a care plan and I provide the most innovative, evidence-based treatments available. Our field is changing fast thanks to advancements in genetic testing and biologic treatments. I love being at an academic medical center where we are up to date on medical breakthroughs and can provide these options for our patients. Our Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery has the most positive, friendly and fun doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses and medical secretaries you will find anywhere. All of us love to work with each other, and this translates to cohesive, compassionate care for our patients.

I’m actively involved in research efforts to find more effective and patient-friendly methods of immunotherapy, including intralymphatic immunotherapy. I’m also passionate about improving processes to eliminate unnecessary drug allergies from patients’ allergy lists. During medical school, I was inducted into the Landacre Honor Society for my research and was honored to receive the Chrysalis Project scholarship from a national allergy organization. There is an energy toward learning and growing at The Ohio State University, not only for students, but for the researchers and health care professionals who continually work toward scientific breakthroughs that benefit our community and people around the world.

I also enjoy educating the next generation of physicians. I’m currently involved with the allergy/immunology interest group at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and serve as a mentor. In addition, as a physician volunteer with the Columbus Free Clinic, I supervise and mentor medical students who are passionate about providing frontline care to patients who otherwise would lack access to quality health care.

I’m very passionate about community service and I was proud to be recognized with the Commitment to Service Award from The Ohio State University. I also serve as a physician volunteer for the Medical Reserve Corp through Franklin County Emergency Management, where I respond to disasters within our community.

I’m also passionate about advocating for improved access to quality health care for everyone at both the local and national level. My experience in this area has included meeting with legislators to discuss strategies to reduce health care disparities. I continue to work through organizations such as the Ohio State Medical Association, American Medical Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, and the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology to work toward the goal of inclusive, accessible, high-quality health care.

I’m a Westerville native and love all the things central Ohio has to offer. When I’m not working, I enjoy hiking, running and cycling in our metro parks, attending community festivals, reading and listening to podcasts. I like trying new restaurants, breweries and distilleries. I also enjoy relaxing on my porch with my dog, cat and friends.
