About Me

As a family medicine nurse practitioner, I specialize in treating patients with both acute and chronic conditions including hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, acute sinusitis and urinary tract infections. Helping others is my passion. Knowing that I’m helping someone to improve his or her quality of life never fails to make my day.

I work hard to provide excellent healthcare to every patient I see. I strongly believe in treating each person individually and promoting personalized care.

My favorite part about working here at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the teaching environment.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also volunteer in the local communities.
