About Me

As a certified nurse practitioner, I specialize in the care and evaluation of the spine, spinal nerves and spinal cord. I provide a patient-centered approach to treatment for conditions such as back pain, neck pain, lumbar radiculopathy, cervical radiculopathy and spinal stenosis. After meeting with a patient and evaluating his or her unique condition, I work with each of them to develop an individualized, multidisciplinary care plan, by utilizing the many resources available here at Ohio State Spine Care. I am passionate about connecting with my patients during this process and seek to understand their health goals and perspective.

I chose to work at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because of its notable academic environment. I enjoy having the opportunity to learn and grow in my profession alongside like-minded, motivated individuals.

In my free time I enjoy reading, gardening, camping and spending time with my husband and children.

    Melanie, the PA, was cordial and a good listener, but I felt there was a limit as to what I could ask her and get real answers regarding sciatica pain on my left, continued burning pain all along my right side, and numbness and tingling in my right hand and arm. I also had questions about the gabapentin, which I was prescribed by Dr. Grossbach.
