About Me

I am a primary care doctor who sees patients 18 years of age and older.

I want to provide patients with excellent quality care and to help educate them on their health needs. Helping patients meet their individual health goals is very important to me.

My clinical interests include preventive medicine and rheumatologic disorders.

What I enjoy most about working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the ability for patients to receive top-level specialty and primary care. I enjoy teaching young physicians, both in the hospital and at the internal medicine residency longitudinal clinic.

I’m proud to call Ohio home. I grew up in the Westerville area, attended Miami University for undergraduate education and then went to medical school at University of Cincinnati.

My husband and I have three children. In my spare time, I enjoy swimming, bicycling and cooking. I volunteer at the Grace Free Clinic in Delaware.
