About Me

As a cardiologist, I specialize in cardiovascular imaging and work closely with my patients to formulate individualized care plans with special consideration for their cardiovascular health. I treat numerous heart conditions including coronary artery disease, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia and women’s heart disease. It’s important for my patients to be actively involved in their own care, so I encourage them to ask questions and stay involved. I begin the process of treatment by addressing any concerns that my patients or their family may have, before conducting a thorough evaluation of their cardiovascular health.

What I love most about The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the opportunity to work with a talented and dedicated team to advance patient care through clinical and research endeavors.

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my son and husband, gardening and cooking.
