About Me

At Ohio State, I focus primarily on inpatient rehabilitation. I’m passionate about providing high-quality care to people who have experienced accidents and medical setbacks to help them improve functionally to discharge home.

I often treat patients after stroke or trauma as well as helping them address postoperative orthopedic concerns. With all of my patients, I act as a consultant to help them navigate the recovery process and coordinating care. My patients from the inpatient hospital sometimes follow up with me in clinic after discharge for any post-hospitalization functional needs.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, cycling, reading and traveling.
  • Wrote a book chapter, “Sensory, motor, and reflex examination,” for musculoskeletal physical exam, an evidence-based approach

  • Currently in the MBA for Working Professionals program at Ohio State
