About Me

As a family medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I have the opportunity to care for many generations of patients and provide continuity of care. I believe in addressing the “whole patient.” This means considering their physical, psychological and emotional needs in a cost effective manner. I provide care for adults and geriatric patients, and am particularly interested in women’s health.

I love working at an academic medical center like Ohio State where I’m able to participate in medical student education, especially during their clinical years.

In my free time I enjoy being around friends and family, exercising, going for walks, riding my bike, skiing, boating, water skiing, listening to music and reading.
