About Me

As a urogynecologist, I treat women with various pelvic floor disorders including urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. Although these conditions are common in women, they often affect patients’ quality of life. We are able to offer treatment options that can significantly improve how women go about their daily lives. I believe in providing care that is individualized to each patient to help meet her health care goals.

My interests include minimally invasive surgery, surgical outcomes and finding ways to improve patients’ quality of life.

My favorite parts about working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center are the people that I work with and the collegial environment.

When I’m not working I love spending time with my family and friends and staying active. I enjoy the outdoors and traveling when I can.
