  • Vice President, American Academy of Otolaryngology — Head and Neck Surgery (AAOHNS)
  • President, Society of University Otolaryngologists (SUO)
  • President, American Society of Geriatric Otolaryngology (ASGO)

I specialize in:

  • Otolaryngology
  • Airway Obstruction
  • Allergy and Immunology
  • Apnea
  • Asthma
  • Cough
  • and 14 more


My practice focuses on allergy and asthma care within otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat). I believe there is no need for most patients with allergies to experience frustrating or bothersome symptoms. We are here to help! I collaborate with a team of specialists in allergy care and related areas of medicine. This teamwork helps us to better serve each patient. Through expert diagnosis, and by addressing and treating the unique needs of each individual, we achieve better overall outcomes. There are many things that I appreciate about working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. My fabulous colleagues top the list! It is a privilege to be part of the Ohio State team. Our multidisciplinary approach contributes to Ohio State's national health care leadership. When I'm not on the job, I enjoy traveling and taking time to relax with my family. I also love to make quilts.
