District 4, At-Large Councilor
9-year OSMA Member
A: I currently run a solo private practice in Sandusky. I recently switched from hospital employed to private practice in 2019, and I am enjoying working with patients through my private practice.
A: I have been a member of OSMA for nearly 10 years. I initially served on the Membership Task Force.
A: This is my first year as Councilor. Looking forward to figuring out the best way to serve as Councilor for the rest of my term and possibly more.
A: Obviously the past year plus has led to significant challenges for many practices and have caused some rapid changes to regulations. OSMA has been very important in highlighting these changes that seemed to change weekly if not more often. As some of these changes are reverted back to pre-pandemic and additional changes are made, OSMA can help by making members aware of these changes as they happen.
A: In addition to OSMA helping me keep up-to-date on changes in the regulatory arena, I have benefitted from some of the group discounts available as the member rate for things like malpractice coverage. My malpractice discount benefit alone more than covers my annual membership fee.
A: It’s pretty simple to get involved. Find a committee or taskforce of interest and apply. They may need the help and if not they will know of your interest and may be able to refer you to a similar committee or taskforce. Check out the OSMA website. There is lots of helpful information on there for every aspect of medicine.
