Current OSU Appointments

Assistant Professor-Clinical, Cardiovascular Medicine

Physician, FGP-Cardiovascular Medicine


Clinical Interest

Cardiovascular Disease, Adult Congenital Heart Disease, Heart Disease and Pregnancy, Advanced Cardiac Imaging


As a member of the Adult Congenital Heart Disease program I have cultivated our high-risk pregnancy program which is the largest in the state of Ohio. Despite having a primary clinical appointment at OSU, I have taken an active role in teaching at all levels in the College of Medicine from first year medical students to advanced cardiology fellows in cardiovascular imaging and Adult Congenital Heart Disease. In addition to my clinical and teaching responsibilities, I also am participating in clinic research projects through both our adult congenital heart disease and high risk pregnancy program as well as our advanced cardiovascular imaging program. I am also involved at the administrative level through ambulatory directorships and quality improvement projects.
