I am a gynecologic oncologist and associate professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. I also serve as the director for the Gynecologic Oncology fellowship program. I have a busy clinical practice and have consistently been rated nationally in the top 10 percent of physicians for patient satisfaction as well as being named to the Castle Connolly list of America's “Top Doctors” in 2015 and 2019.
Born and raised in Springfield, Ohio, I received my medical degree from Northeast Ohio Medical University in Rootstown, Ohio, where I was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha. I completed a residency in gynecology and obstetrics at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia. This was followed by a fellowship in gynecologic oncology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland. During this time, I also received my Master of Business Administration. After my fellowship, I joined the faculty at The Ohio State University.
Since joining the faculty, I have received numerous teaching awards from the medical students and residents. I have published multiple articles and book chapters with a focus on survivorship for women with gynecologic cancers and have served as the principal investigator on national and institutional clinical trials.
Additionally, I have been actively involved in national and international organizations, including the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the International Gynecologic Cancer Society. I also currently serve on the Health Outcomes Research Committee of the Gynecologic Oncology Group and have served on the executive council for the Society of Gynecologic Oncology.
