About Me

As a family medicine physician, I strive to provide quality, evidence-based care for my patients. I am passionate about including healthy lifestyle as part of chronic disease management and preventive care. I think nutrition and exercise are very important for improving both physical and mental health. I encourage my patients to take an active role in the decision-making process so that we are working as a team to maximize their overall health.

I enjoy working at an innovative academic medical center. As a top leader in health care, Ohio State offers a vast network of resources for physicians and patients alike. Having access to new research and excellent specialists ensures that we continue to provide our patients with the best care possible.

In my free time I enjoy traveling, hiking, running and going to Ohio State football games.

She was great. She asked a lot of questions to help figure out why I had been experiencing so much leg discomfort at night, which helped me feel confident in her diagnosis. She presented a couple of options as our next step. That made me feel like we were making the decision together, which I appreciate. I was glad I had the option of some behavioral adjustments before going right to meds.
