About Me

I have a passion for caring for other people. I have witnessed the crucial role that nurse practitioners provide in a patient’s care, not only as a health care provider but also as someone concerned for a loved one. As a nurse practitioner, I have the ability to empower and impact my patients’ lives with knowledge and understanding of their disease and treatment options. I understand that a patient’s experience is shaped by the care they receive. That’s why I ensure my patients receive compassionate, quality care in a safe environment.

Working in an academic setting is important to me because the atmosphere lends itself to many opportunities for learning while I strengthen my core competencies as a nurse practitioner.

I first gained experience in medical settings as a provider during my 10 years as a cardiac nurse before my current profession. Now I work closely with colorectal surgeons and specialize in anorectal diseases, being the first nurse practitioner credentialed in anoscopy within The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center hospital system.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with family, exploring with my dog, traveling and photography.

    She made an awkward situation better by taking the time to really speak with me and explain what was going to happen with the exam.

    The ap nurse listened to my issues and gave me reasonable options based on my history and exam. She was also aware of the possible costs of treatment options.

    I didn't feel like my concerns were validated by the care provider. I was told I could have another appointment if my symptoms come back again, but it didn't sound like anything could be done unless I am in constant pain every day of my life. So even though I couldn't sleep or focus at work for two weeks when my symptoms were bad, it sounded like that is just something I have to deal with if it happens again. I just didn't feel like she was empathetic toward my situation. Also, when I made this appointment, my symptoms were the worst they had ever been and the soonest I could get in was 4 weeks later. So I don't have much hope for ever being able to get an appointment when my symptoms are bad.

    Jessica was outstanding. I was very nervous to see a female for rectal issues, but she made it very comfortable. Very professional and courteous.
