I was born in Madison, Wisconsin, but lived mostly in Illinois. I attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for my undergraduate training in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Chemistry and attended the University of Illinois College of Medicine for medical school. I, then, attended residency at The Ohio State Family Medicine Residency, where I had a wonderful experience so I decided to continue to practice in the Columbus-area at the Ohio State Family Medicine Worthington location. I will also be providing Hospital Care at the Ohio State East Hospital with our residency inpatient service.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and traveling. I also like to remain active with sand volleyball, biking, and taking walks along the MetroPark trails. I'm a passionate learner of horticulture and gastronomy. I also enjoy watching all sports, but football is my favorite. Go Packers! 

I'm in the process of obtaining my MBA from the Ohio State Fisher College of Business and plan to graduate in May 2020. I also enjoy volunteering at a variety of athletic events around Columbus and at the Columbus free clinics.

Research, Education, Clinical Interests

As a family medicine physician, I'm passionate about getting to know my patients as well as providing excellent patient-centered care through their whole lifespan. My clinical focus is in preventative care, chronic disease management (including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and weight management), pediatrics/adolescent health, women’s health (including prenatal), and mental health. 

My goal is to form a partnership with my patients to make sure we address all aspects of their health and well-being: physical health, mental/emotional health, and social health. I believe that with shared decision-making and individualized care, my patients and I can work towards all their health goals and to achieve the healthiest version of themselves.
