A little about me

My practice consists of management and prevention of health conditions using traditional and integrative ideals.  This includes: consistency in health regimens and routines, nutrition, supplements, vitamins and essential oils.

My career spans over nearly 20 years in health care.  After graduating from The Ohio State University in 1999, I took a registered nurse position in the Critical Care Fellowship at Riverside Methodist Hospital and later moved the Emergency Room. I gained vast knowledge and understanding of caring for people in acute and emergent situations.  This knowledge gave me a strong foundation to build on when I returned to school to become a nurse practitioner.  In 2010, I graduated from Wright State University with my Master’s of Science in Nursing degree.  I then joined the OSU Wexner Medical Center Department of Family Medicine.  I initially started at the OSU FastCare Clinic and in moved to the OSU Center for Integrative Medicine in 2013 where I found one of my passions, integrative medicine.
Just this year I have also completed doTERRA’s AromaTouch Technique Certification (essential oil relaxation/stress management technique) as well as gaining acceptance as a Fellow at the University of Arizona Center for the Integrative Medicine Distance Learning Fellowship.
