I have two clinical roles at Cincinnati Children’s. I care for patients in the Emergency Departments and Urgent Cares and provide medical care at our College Hill mental health facility as a hospitalist.
I always knew I would have a career that provided service to others. Our ability to form connections and help others is central to my personality. I became interested in medicine due to a fascination with human physiology. I enjoyed learning how the body works and how to identify and treat a patient when they are not well or injured.
In both my roles, I treat every patient and family as if they are part of my own family. My approach is to listen to their concerns, advocate for them and help them achieve the health they want. My research centers on how to deliver the right care at the right time to our patients.
During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family. I also like running, golfing, doing home projects and woodworking.
