Meet Our Faculty and Staff
Things that bring me joy: My family (Jillian, Sophie, and Maxwell), teaching Family Medicine, exercising, eating out, movie night, watching the Buckeyes and the Cleveland teams win.
Two truths and a lie (no particular order): Jillian and I met in medical school at OUHCOM over 16 years ago and she is a hospitalist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. I have attended ten Taylor Swift concerts on three different continents. I completed my residency in the Army and spent seven years on active duty.
Why you should consider training with us: When I was hired in 2015 to start the Dublin Methodist Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program, I had a vision. That vision was to prepare family medicine physicians for future practice in Ohio. Though the ACGME requires us to train you to be a “full spectrum” family practitioner, it is rare to see non-academic FM physicians practice “full spectrum” medicine in Ohio. I believe that it is important to know how to deliver a baby and how to attend to sick patients in the hospital, but it is just as important establishing a rapport with your patient panel and being available to see them every day. We pride ourselves in having an innovative and flexible curriculum that puts an emphasis on outpatient medicine and wellness. No matter what your interests are, we are confident that we can build a curriculum for you that will help you succeed as an outpatient family physician.

Favorite foods: Pizza – I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. When I can’t have pizza, anything “ethnic” – I especially love spicy Indian curries, street tacos, and Thai and Chinese food from places where I’m in the minority. I also enjoy cooking “light” and have a family reputation for “meat with salad” and corn on the cob all summer long.
Favorite places to travel: Either where I just went, where I’m next planning to go, or where you just went or are planning to go…I always have a serious case of wanderlust and love to plan vacations, think about them, and hear about other people’s vacations.
Something people might not know about me: I lived in China for just over 4 years with my husband and three young kids. We are now “empty nesters” and I love working up here with this team. It’s been a blast being part of starting a new residency.
