As a family medicine nurse practitioner, I provide a multidisciplinary approach to patient care while navigating families through any and all health concerns. I also provide referals to the appropriate specialists on a situational basis. I often assist patients with smoking cessation, and some of the most common conditions I treat include depression, diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia. There are many chronic diseases that can be avoided through healthy lifestyle choices such as proper nutrition and adequate physical activity, so I have taken a special interest in health promotion and disease prevention. My goal is to lend families a healing hand while encouraging all patients to be the best versions of themselves.
As a proud two-time Ohio State graduate, I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center as OSU has always felt like a second home to me. I feel blessed to work at a place where access to the highest quality care and resources are at my fingertips.
When I’m not working, I enjoy relaxing with my husband and playing with our two children. I also spend time fundraising for the nonprofit organization, Jordan’s Guardian Angels.
