About Me

As a physician assistant working in orthopedic surgery, I specifically see patients with shoulder pain and injuries. I am passionate about patient-centered care, and educating patients so they are able to play a key role in the medical decision-making process. Many of my patients live fairly active lifestyles, and it’s especially rewarding to help them return to their hobbies and regular activities.

My favorite part of working at an academic medical center like Ohio State is the opportunity to offer patients the most modern treatments, which is made possible through access to novel research and continued education for our faculty and staff. I am proud to be a part of my Buckeye family and a nationally renowned institution.

I live an active lifestyle, so in my free time I enjoy exercising, exploring the city of Columbus and traveling.
