About Me

As a general dermatology specialist, I treat patients with a wide variety of conditions like acne, warts, rashes, nail diseases, pigmentation disorders and skin cancers.

I want my patients to view me as a compassionate partner and reliable resource in their health care. I believe it’s important to educate patients about all of their options in order to provide the highest level of treatment possible.

As a graduate of The Ohio State University College of Medicine, it’s a privilege to return and help to train the next generation of physicians. I also enjoy collaborating with The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center’s talented team of dermatologists to provide innovative patient care.

In my free time, I enjoy spending family time with my husband and three children. I also love reading and creative crafting.

    My physician actually sat down and listened to me. Looked at my skin, asked great questions, asked about prev meds I had used. It was great. I don't expect the physician to sit and chat but it was really good. Showed she is down to earth and is listening. Thank you!
