About Me

As an oculoplastic surgeon, I specialize in functional and cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgery around the eyes. I offer treatments to my patients that improve the function and structure around the eyes, as well as improving a patient’s appearance.

I treat functional eyelid disorders including ptosis (droopy eyelids), eyelid malpositions, tear duct abnormalities and eyelash abnormalities. I also perform surgeries to remove the eye, treat orbital and periorbital tumors, trauma and thyroid eye disease. I provide cosmetic services including upper and lower eyelid surgery, browlift and nonsurgical treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers.

I believe that the physician-patient relationship is the cornerstone of providing excellent medical care. Compassion, communication and competency, as well as earning and maintaining my patients’ trust, is very important to me. I cherish the opportunity to positively impact the quality of my patients’ lives.

I love the collegiality and team approach that we have here at Ohio State. This institution provides patients with a wealth of resources and top leaders in almost every specialty of medicine. Knowing that my patients have access to great resources and providers is invaluable.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter. We love spending time with the rest of our family, enjoying the outdoors and traveling.


  • My research interests include facial anatomy pertaining to surgical and nonsurgical oculoplastic procedures and improving surgical outcomes and quality of life for Mohs reconstruction patients
