My Biography & Research

Biography

I am a brain injury and rehabilitation medicine doctor specializing in concussion and acquired brain injury. In my practice, we take a collaborative approach to care, working with patients and their families to achieve their collective goals.

There are often many “right” paths to healing, and a team-based approach that is patient- and family-centered works best to achieve good outcomes. Watching children recover, thrive and achieve their goals inspires me.

I am honored to have received the following awards:

  • Association of Academic Physiatrists (AAP) Young Academician Award in 2014. This award recognizes a young clinical and translational research leader.
  • American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine Early Investigator Award in Rehabilitation Research in 2014. This award recognizes a young clinical and translational research leader who demonstrates drive and commitment to furthering rehabilitation research.
  • University of Cincinnati College of Medicine Pediatric Scholars Summer Faculty “Hero” Teaching/Mentoring Award in 2015. This award is for the outstanding teaching of medical students during their summer research experience.

With my current research, my colleagues and I want to understand the variability in recovery after an acquired brain injury and to develop better treatment approaches.

I love spending my free time with my family. I also enjoy coaching, playing soccer and tennis, yoga, cross-training and cooking on the grill.
