About Me

As a family medicine physician, I believe in a holistic approach to patient care where physical and mental health are both important in a patient’s overall well-being. I enjoy empowering my patients to make the most of their healthcare.

I love working at an academic medical center like Ohio State where there are numerous resources for my patients as well as the opportunity to teach the next generation of family medicine physicians.

In my free time I enjoy cooking, reading and learning new languages. I also love to travel, both nationally and internationally.
