About Me

As a family medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I provide ongoing medical care for patients with chronic conditions as well as cancer screenings. It’s rewarding to get to know my patients so well after seeing them for a number of years.

My favorite part about Ohio State is the opportunity to work with amazing colleagues. I also enjoy teaching medical students and family medicine residents.

When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and watching Ohio State sports. All four of my children graduated from Ohio State, so we’re a Buckeye family.
