About MeAs a member of The Ohio State University Department of Family Medicine, I am able to focus on patient care, teaching and research. My clinical interests revolve around achieving wellness in our community.
I practice obstetrics and have a special interest in women’s health issues, including the procedures involved in keeping my female patients healthy. I am passionate about training new physicians and helping them prepare to become future leaders of the community.
Because I have developed relationships with my patients over several years, I am able to understand what is important to them when making healthcare decisions.
I enjoy the variety of educational opportunities available here at Ohio State, including teaching medical students, residents and mentoring new graduates. My research interests focus on quality and patient safety. In addition to advanced training in medical acupuncture, I also am board certified in hospice and palliative medicine. I feel privileged to care for my patients and their families through the experiences and challenges of life.
In my free time I enjoy traveling, relaxing with my family, bicycling and participating in Pelotonia.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. 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.
