About Me

As a family medicine and integrative medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center I specialize in osteopathic medicine and acupuncture as it relates to primary care for children and adults. I am interested in acupuncture, mind-body practices, health promotion and holistic medicine.

Working with my patients and encouraging them in their personal pursuit of wellness is the most exciting part of my day. It’s inspiring to see patients who are grounded in the daily, sometimes difficult, work of making healthy choices for themselves and their families, and it’s something I strive to emulate in my own health journey.

I am interested in research that applies osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) to pediatric populations, especially those with feeding difficulties or developmental delay.

I enjoy the academic cultural at Ohio State. It’s great to work with people who are enthusiastically curious and passionate about patient care.
