I am a physician assistant who cares for children with congenital heart defects and require cardiac surgery. I care for patients throughout their inpatient and outpatient course. I was inspired to work in pediatrics because of the care and concern I see from parents.
I am originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In 2003, I joined the United States Air Force and served as an F-15 hydraulic mechanic. I later attended Madonna University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in biology and graduated with the distinction of summa cum laude. I then obtained a master’s degree in physician assistant studies from the University of Kentucky.
In my practice, I strive to honor each patient's dignity and integrity while providing expert medical care. I enjoy the time I spend getting to know patients and their families. I feel blessed to be part of the Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children’s and excited to work with such a wonderful group of practitioners.
I enjoy spending my free time with my wife, two sons and two daughters, watching family movies and exploring Cincinnati’s parks. I also enjoy reading, traveling, snowboarding and deer hunting.
