Personal Bio: I am currently the Chief Resident at Western Reserve Hospital in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, near Akron. Following my undergraduate studies at The Ohio State University, I attended The Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, now the Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine. My training thus far as a resident of Western Reserve Hospital has exceeded my expectations, providing me with extensive experience and growth as a physician. My expectations as chief have grown to include teaching and working closely with my fellow residents as well as filling in for our attendings when needed. My training has afforded me with confidence and well-rounded exposure to all foot and ankle pathology. Whether in office, wound care clinic, hospital setting, or operating room, these qualities would be beneficial for your practice. I am married to my husband, Mitchell, who is a middle school science teacher and high school football coach. We have a daughter and two dogs. In my spare time, I enjoy walks with the family, running, crafts, cooking, and of course the Buckeyes!
