About Me

As a transplant physician assistant at Ohio State, I work with a multidisciplinary team to help manage abdominal organ transplant patients following their operation and those who are readmitted within the first year of their transplant.

My goal is to help patients return to doing the things they love in life, and I treat every patient as a unique individual. It’s very rewarding to be a part of these lifesaving organ transplants. Even after a major surgery, my patients often say "I have not felt this good in years!"

I grew up here in Columbus and have always been a big Buckeye fan. My favorite part about working at Ohio State is the opportunity to work on such a great team that is dedicated to providing excellent patient care.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending my free time running, working out at Orangetheory Fitness and hanging out with my sister.
