About Me

As a neurology nurse practitioner, I work with patients who have memory disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, dementia with Lewy Bodies, vascular dementia and frontotemporal dementia. I also see patients with movement disorders, particularly those with Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor.

I enjoy helping people to alleviate bothersome symptoms caused by their chronic diseases. Patient and family education is very important when it comes to chronic disease management. It helps people to be active participants in their care.

I am proud to be part of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, where we’re known for our quality patient care and research efforts. I enjoy working with a team that’s actively finding the best disease modifying treatments for the degenerative conditions that I treat.

When I’m not working, I enjoy hiking and spending time with my friends and family.
