Chair and Associate Professor, Osteopathic Clinical Medicine

Additional Roles
Physician, Family Medicine Clinic
Associate Professor, Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine Program

Clinical Interests: As a family physician, I am trained to take care of both males and females from the time they are newborns until they are 110 years old.  I enjoy partnering with patients who have multiple chronic conditions to set and meet their own health care goals.  I have special interests in obesity management and providing compassionate care for the LGBTQ+ population.  I provide basic OMT (osteopathic manual treatment) to my patients when it is indicated and they request it.  

Teaching Interests: To me, nothing is as professionally rewarding as watching a medical student’s doctoring skills grow throughout their education.  Upon graduation, DMU students will become my colleagues and care for me and my family.  I enjoy coaching students who are struggling with interview, examination, or documentation skills.  I participate in various Inter-Professional Education events at DMU so osteopathic and podiatric student physicians can learn together with students in a variety of other health care fields to practice what they will be doing in the workplace after graduation.
