Biography

Philosophy of Care

I chose to pursue a career as a physician assistant so that I could form close, transparent relationships with my patients, and work collaboratively as a team to provide the highest quality medical care. I value opportunities to help motivate my patients to take the lead in their own medical decision-making, and recognize that my patients can teach me something in return. It’s my goal to provide evidence-based medicine targeted at both the physical and mental well-being of my patients and their family members.

Personal

I currently live in St. Louis Park, and will be marrying my fiancé in 2019. We both grew up in Minnesota and then attended Creighton University together. In my free time, I enjoy running outside around the lakes, brewing my own kombucha, and being the best aunt to my three nieces. I try to frequently return to Omaha for Creighton basketball games and the College World Series in the summer.
