I became a gynecologic surgeon because I’m passionate about being a champion for women’s health. All women deserve access to dedicated specialists who will listen to their concerns and treat their pain seriously. I’m committed to providing my patients with the best care possible and helping them to understand all of the health care options available.
Whenever possible, I provide my patients with minimally invasive options that will shorten recovery times. I perform surgeries using robotics and procedures like advanced laparoscopy, single-incision and vaginal surgeries.
The most common conditions I treat include heavy and painful periods, endometriosis, pelvic floor dysfunction, painful intercourse, ovarian cysts, hormonal management and incontinence. My research is focused on ways to alleviate pain from these conditions and how to improve surgical outcomes.
At The Ohio State University, I love serving as a mentor to medical students. My fellowship in advanced gynecologic surgery and pelvic pain at the Mayo Clinic inspired me to remain in academic medicine. As an academic medical center, I believe The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is able to provide better and more complete care to patients.
When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family and playing with my dog. I also enjoy cooking, reading and exploring Columbus.

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.
