About Me

As a certified nurse midwife, I specialize in low-risk pregnancy and well-woman care, including annual exams and contraception. I enjoy getting to know women during their pregnancies, and love the continuity of seeing them for well-woman care for years to come. I strive to empower women of all ages in their healthcare decision-making by providing them with the tools and education they need to make informed choices.

I came to Ohio State because I wanted to be a part of the academic environment, where there are so many opportunities for research and continuing education. I love working in a multidisciplinary department, and feel fortunate to have access to resources that allow us to provide the best care for our patients.

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