About Me


As a pediatric neurosurgery physician assistant, I care for neurosurgical patients admitted to the pediatric and neonatal intensive care units, the neurosurgical floor, as well as those presenting to the emergency department.

I work with a great group of pediatric neurosurgeons and advanced practice providers. Together, we provide the best possible care for children and their families while at Cincinnati Children’s.

I started my career in adult neurosurgery but felt something was missing. I love children and enjoy helping kids get back to being kids after they are hurting or sick. I felt called to care for this unique patient population.

When I’m not at work, I love hanging out with my husband and three kids — doing almost anything. In the summer you’ll find us by the pool or at the beach. The rest of the year, I am running. My family loves the Flying Pig Marathon. It’s such a fun running weekend here in Cincinnati.
