About Me

As an obstetrician and gynecologist, I specialize in the care of women. It is truly an honor to be a part of someone's life and care for her as she celebrates the birth of a new baby, mourns a loss, or moves into menopause. I have an amazing job.

I believe in getting to know my patients. Through knowing my patients better, I can provide them with personalized, evidence-based, high-quality care.

Having completed my residency at Ohio State, left for fellowship and then returned to practice here, I know just how special this place is. I feel fortunate to work here and to be able to care for patients at Ohio State. I know my patients have access to the best people and the best that medicine has to offer.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, and I love to cook for friends. I also enjoy running and training for half marathons — and maybe a marathon one day.
