Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?
Since the beginning of my clinical training, gastrointestinal disorders have always fascinated me. Every disease and patient presentation is unique and requires a dynamic management approach. I truly enjoy getting to know my patients and creating a comprehensive yet focused treatment plan.
Do you have a specialty of interest within GI?
While I enjoy all aspects of gastroenterology, my special interests include gastrointestinal motility disorders, specifically esophageal and anorectal disorders. This consists of conditions such as refractory heartburn and constipation, post-esophageal surgery syndromes, pelvic floor dysfunction and fecal incontinence.
Where did you study?
I completed my undergraduate studies at Drexel University. I then completed Medical School at Ross University School of Medicine. Thereafter, I returned to Drexel University College of Medicine to complete my internship, residency and fellowship training. During my fellowship, I completed additional training in motility disorders.

Outside of work, I enjoy travelling, cooking, strength training and most of all spending time with my husband and son.
