I am a gynecologic oncologist who specializes in treating patients with endometrial, uterine, ovarian, vulvar, cervical and peritoneal cancers, as well as gestational trophoblastic disease. I am passionate about providing comprehensive care to my patients, including complex and minimally invasive surgery, chemotherapy and survivorship, and enjoy building relationships with them and their families through open and honest communication.
The care at the OSUCCC – James is special because of the large multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses and ancillary services like social workers, patient care resource managers, nutritionists, geneticists and many more. At The James, my patients have access to the most innovative and exciting clinical trials, which offer more and potentially better options for their care. I also have access to the most up-to-date surgical techniques and equipment.
As a physician-scientist, my research interests include evaluating predictive and prognostic markers in cancer genetics, as well as performing laboratory research on endometrial cancer. My work has been published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, Gynecologic Oncology, Cancer and other peer-reviewed publications, and I have presented at several national meetings as well.
In addition to my clinical work, I am an assistant professor in the Department of Gynecologic Oncology at The Ohio State University College of Medicine, where I teach both residents and medical students. I am also a member of several professional organizations, including the Society of Gynecologic Oncology and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
The OSUCCC – James is a great place to work. The facilities are beautiful, and I enjoy the amazing group of people who help me to provide care to our patients each day. At The James, I am able to participate in groundbreaking research and contribute to our shared goal of creating a cancer-free world.
