About Me

As an obstetrician and gynecologist, my goal is to empower my patients 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 gender affirming care. 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 going on walks.
