About Me

As a rheumatologist at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I keep an individualized approach in mind while working with patients to formulate a care plan. The key element of my practice is to not just focus on the disease itself but also other elements that influence a patient’s health. In my opinion, a holistic approach is the cornerstone of providing quality care in medicine.

In my general rheumatology clinic, I see patients with various types of arthritis and other inflammatory or autoimmune conditions related to the joints, muscles, or bones. I treat adults with conditions as diverse as arthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, gout, lupus, scleroderma, myositis, vasculitis, and sarcoidosis. I also see adolescents that are transitioning from pediatric to adult rheumatologists for continuity of care.

I’ve lived in Columbus since 2007 and I am proud to be a part of the Ohio State team. Working here gives me the opportunity to work with providers from many different subspecialties which is conducive to solving challenging and puzzling cases. I also have a passion for teaching, and I enjoy mentoring post-doctorate rheumatology fellows.

When I’m away from work, I like to spend time with my husband, who’s an established physician in the community. In my free time I find joy in dancing, gardening, and biking.

Consulting and Related Relationships
