I completed my bachelor of science in molecular biology at Grove City College in 1999, followed by my degree in osteopathic medicine at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2003. I completed my tradition internship and general psychiatry residency at Millcreek Community Hospital in 2007. Since then I have worked at the following locations : Safe Harbor Behavioral Health, Healing Hearts Psychiatry private practice, Erie Homes for Children and Adults, Erie County Prison, Stairways Behavioral Health, Forest State Correctional Institution, St. Vincent Hospital, Pleasant Ridge Manor, and Ellwood City Geropsychiatry. I have over five years experience specifically in addictions and forensic psychiatry. I feel comfortable with any patient population at this time.
