About Me

I’m a lifelong central Pennsylvania resident who has practiced internal medicine at both Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and St. Joseph Medical Center, caring exclusively for adult patients admitted to the hospital. I’m certified as a physician assistant (PA) by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants. Before earning my PA degree, I was an exercise physiologist for 15 years, working with patients who had heart and lung disease. What is most important to me is helping patients reach and maintain good health so they can achieve their desired quality of life. My focus is on safe and appropriate transitions to the next level of care when patients are ready to leave the hospital, to ensure they continue on a path of recovery.
