About Me

As a sports medicine and orthopedic surgery physician assistant, I enjoy helping people return to a pain free and active lifestyle. I treat patients with orthopedic injuries to the shoulder, knee and elbow. I believe in empowering patients to make informed decisions regarding the best treatment options for their condition.

I was previously a student athletic trainer at The Ohio State University, helping our athletes return to their sport. The best part about working here at Ohio State are the people – my colleagues and our patient population who are motivated to get back in the "game".

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, jogging, golfing with my husband and watching my children’s sporting events.
