About Me

As an obstetrician and gynecologist, I believe in meeting patients where they are to provide evidence-based, patient-centered care. My patients can trust me to be their advocate and I bring compassion, honesty, respect and confidentiality to every encounter.

I provide well-person exams, treat patients during pregnancy and offer contraceptive care. I perform minimally invasive gynecological surgical procedures and hysterectomies and treat patients for conditions such as endometriosis and sexual dysfunction.

My clinical areas of specialty include LGBTQ+ care. I provide general gynecologic care for gender-diverse patients and hormone replacement therapies for gender affirmation. My research interests include post-operative outcomes for gender-affirming hysterectomy.

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, and especially the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, is like a family. The pursuit of excellence in patient care is inspiring, and I appreciate the support I’ve received both personally and professionally from my colleagues. There is no better place to work. I’m also proud to help train medical students and resident physicians in my role as an assistant professor.

When I’m not working, I love spending time with my partner, Kenneth, and our hairless cats. I also enjoy political activism and volunteering, conservation, aquariums, cocktails, vacationing, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
