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.

    Provider had no clue about my history in her defense this was her first time seeing me as a patient tho I have been there before. She had no prior knowledge and that seems to be the norm. She is the 3rd provider I have seen there & I had prior records sent and it's obvious nobody bothers to look at them. They just put me thru the same things I have been thru numerous times in my life time for the same issue. At any rate this provider was very friendly, caring, professional, understanding. I am willing to see her again. She was competent with a good bedside manner.
