About Me

As a physician assistant in sports medicine, I facilitate the treatment and management of patients with injuries caused by exercise or sports-related activities. I specialize in non-surgical treatment of acute and chronic knee conditions, and provide patients with physical therapy prescriptions, bracing options, injection therapy and medication management. I also assist the primary care sports medicine physicians with the management of treatment and follow-up care for commonly experienced conditions of the shoulder, elbow, hip and ankle. I spend time carefully educating patients on the nature of their diagnosis and reviewing available care options. I think it’s important to give patients realistic expectations for results and recovery. I believe a patient must be invested in improving his or her own health, so I like to work together as a team to develop the best treatment plan to get a patient back to a healthy, active lifestyle.

I chose to work at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center as I have always felt that in order to better oneself, one must surround oneself with the best. I enjoy collaborating with a group of some of the most talented physicians and advanced practice providers in the country, and working as part of a team to provide our patients with the highest quality care.

In my free time, I enjoy being active, traveling and spending time with my husband and our two young sons.

    Everything and every time I see Emily, the whole treatment has gone smoothly and efficiently. She always makes sure the exact spot is properly marked and completely numbed before she goes into the area. The injections help me so much and she has always gotten the exact area and so far never have had any complications.
