Philosophy of Care
As a lifelong soccer player, I really view myself as the team captain in a patient’s gynecologic oncology care and journey. I am there to provide education, learn from patient experiences, set goals, give words of encouragement, administer a little tough love, work with other team leaders, and adapt to evolving situations & scenarios. I also know that every journey is unique and that we need to personalize a patient’s care experience.
I grew up as the daughter of a district judge and psychologist. The values that they instilled in me have greatly shaped my own experience in the medical field. I love spending time with my family. This includes my husband, 2 children (daughter and son), and dog. Hugo is a white “yellow” lab and is a certified therapy dog. We enjoy traveling, both as a family and on adult trips. We love attending sporting events (especially Gopher & Vikings football games) and outdoor activities. We especially enjoy the Minnesota lakes. My husband is a University of Minnesota alum and I am a College of Saint Benedict alum. We enjoy having many friends in the area, too. I also love reading, writing, (informal) event planning and being an advocate for women’s health.
