About Me

As a nurse practitioner at Ohio State, I specialize in family practice and manage common problems, including women’s health and pediatrics. Throughout my 28 years as a family medicine nurse practitioner I have also developed expertise in the management of many chronic issues.

I want to help people as much as possible, whether that means providing preventative medicine or helping a patient to manage a chronic illness. I believe in partnering with each patient to provide patient-centered care to help them be as healthy as possible. I also collaborate with other healthcare providers to bring the full range of resources to every patient.

My favorite part about working at Ohio State is the wide range of resources that are available to patients throughout the medical center. I chose to practice at Total Health and Wellness Clinic so I could use my skills to care for underserved individuals with chronic diseases.

When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, cooking, being outdoors and spending time with my family and friends.
