About Me

My true life's passion is helping people. Through medicine, and specifically neurology, I can combine my inquisitive nature and work ethic to make my patients lives' better. Additionally, the complexity of the peripheral nervous system and advancements in the field of neuromuscular disease compels me to constantly increase my knowledge of disease processes and treatments to best treat my patients. I aim to help patients lead their healthiest and most productive lives.

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is special because it truly is a community, a team, all working towards the common goal of improving patients' lives. This can be achieved in ways beyond patient care since mentoring students and conducting research play a significant role at the medical center and my own career.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking, biking and other outdoor recreation.
