Biography

Philosophy of Care

One of my goals when treating patients is to see the whole person, not just this moment in their lives. I strive to provide compassionate care with an evidence based background from the first moment the patient steps into my office. I work along side the patient and their loved ones to choose the path which aligns best with their goals of care. 

Areas of Special Interest

Personal

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends. My fiance and I try to take advantage of the many bike trails the Twin Cities has to offer. I also enjoy hiking, traveling, practicing yoga and reading books of all genres.
