About Me

As an obstetrician and gynecologist, my goal is to empower women as they make decisions about their reproductive health and well-being. I specialize in abnormal uterine bleeding, contraceptive care, early pregnancy management, family planning, preventative care and transgender health. I am passionate about partnering with my patients in order to create healthcare plans that are both evidence-based and suited to their unique needs and values.

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I am always confident that my patients receive top-quality care.

In my free time, I enjoy reading and gardening, especially growing tomatoes.

The doctor was very kind and very very understanding about my anxiety over the appointment and the procedure. She was professional and really listened when I had questions/concerns (which surprisingly has not always been the case for me at other non-OSU facilities).
