About Me

I practice in general obstetrics and gynecology. It’s a privilege to work with so many wonderful women throughout their lives. I appreciate the opportunity to help them meet some of life’s greatest joys and challenges.

It's important to me to engage my patients in their care. Together, we can find healthcare approaches that best meet their individual needs. I enjoy accomplishing this while also maintaining best practices recommended by evidence-based medicine.

Working at Ohio State allows me to have immediate access to the latest updates, including medical practice and research. The best in primary and specialty care co-management is here.

Ohio State also allows us to maintain a connection with the bright, enthusiastic minds that are the next generation of outstanding healthcare providers.

When I'm not on the job, I enjoy relaxing with my family, reading and traveling.
