About

Biography

I was inspired to go to college by my parents, who were children of the Great Depression and did not have the financial resources to attend college themselves. In medical school and residency, my mentor physicians encouraged me to choose infectious diseases as a subspecialty.

As an infectious disease physician and director of Adult Clinical Services, I treat each patient as I would want to be treated. Infectious Disease is a small division, so we work closely with our nurses and medical assistants to provide timely and exceptional patient care.

I received the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Immunization Champion Award for the state of Ohio in 2018. This award was for my efforts in improving immunization rates among Ohio’s children.

In my research, my colleagues and I are looking for ways to improve vaccines for influenza. We are also studying candidate vaccines for SARS-CoV-2, which is the cause of COVID-19 disease.

During my spare time, I enjoy embroidery, and I make my own clothes.
