Meet our Team
Tracy is typically the first voice you hear on the phone and the first face you see when you come through the doors. She will schedule your initial appointment, process your paperwork and handle your initial questions.

Tracy will be happy to help you through any of your paperwork questions and ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. Tracy joined Central Ohio Plastic Surgery in 2013.

At your first appointment in the office, our nurse, Jill, will escort you to a consultation room and review your medical history with you. When you decide to schedule surgery, Jill will be responsible for setting the date and coordinating your care. Jill will use her expertise to help guide you through the surgery process from your initial consultation to your final post op visit. Jill joined our staff in 2013 after spending 8 years as the plastic surgery service line leader at Fairfield Medical Center, so she brings both clinical knowledge plus plastic surgery practical experience to our team. Jill is an excellent resource for all of your clinical questions, and your pre op and post op care.
When Jill is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her family, especially during the summer on Buckeye Lake. You will often find Jill at the side of a court, track or ballfield cheering on her incredibly active children.
