About Me

I’m a physician assistant in the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at The James. I received my master’s degree in physician assistant studies from Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science and have worked at the OSUCCC – James since 2016, where I’m involved in the repair and reconstruction of patients with many types of cancer.

At the James, we see a large number of sarcoma and orthopedic oncology patients. We perform reconstructive surgeries all over the body to help after cancer resection with various specialties, and we also work with oncologic amputees using targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR). In conjunction with our referring surgical and orthopedic oncology colleagues, we strive to give every patient the best oncologic and functional recovery possible.

I am very passionate about my career at the OSUCCC – James because I get to help “put people back together.” Working in plastic and reconstructive surgery allows me to physically help patients restore and recover what they can after tumor or mass resections. It is challenging and rewarding at the same time. While some patients may have more extensive chemotherapy or radiation treatments to go through, we are there to help them restore appearance and function when possible so that they can resume their lives.
