About Me

I am a dermatologist at Ohio State and I’m board certified in both dermatology and gynecology. I specialize in treating dermatologic disease in pregnancy, vulvar diseases and dermatologic surgery. I decided to pursue dermatology because I found in my general OB/GYN practice that many women were undertreated for skin disease in pregnancy. I also realized that women were inadequately treated for disabling vulvar diseases that had a negative impact on their lives.

In regard to patient care, I believe in developing collaborative relationships with patients where we work together as a team to create a treatment plan.

Working at Ohio State means I have the opportunity to collaborate with physicians in other specialties who have unique clinical and research interests. I also love teaching future physicians and dermatologists.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, son and dog. I also enjoy personal training, traveling, volunteering at my son’s school library, playing the violin and playing the piano.

    Dr. Tyler is not my PCP, but dermatologist. I only see her once a year unless I have a break out related to my skin condition. I had a massive break out and I was able to get an appointment within a week. I was given a shot "to calm things down," and a prescription medication to apply topically. Most of my problem has cleared.

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.
