Cheryl has been a Physician Assistant since 2002. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Dayton and graduated from the Physician Assistant program at the Kettering College of Medical Arts. She obtained her Masters of Physician Assistant Studies in Pain Management and Physical Medicine from the University of Nebraska. Cheryl encourages an alternative approach to pain management so the need for medications is minimized. She expects her patients to engage in their lives physically, socially, and spiritually so that pain is not the focus of their existence, but just another aspect of life to be lived. She enjoys spending time with her husband, family, and friends.
