Philosophy of Care: It is a privilege to assist patients and families in achieving their best possible quality of life by anticipating, preventing, and managing symptoms. I truly enjoy working with the interdisciplinary team at Minnesota Oncology to assist patients and families with their physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs throughout the oncology journey.
Personal: My husband and I are busy with 3 young children, who are the joys of our lives. When I’m not attending our kids’ activities (including leading a very active troop of Girl Scouts), I try to share my love of painting, music, science, art and history with my husband and kids by exploring everything Minnesota has to offer. I am a Minnesota native, and we also love to spend time with extended family, including trips to my parents’ farm in Southwest Minnesota.
