Philosophy of Care
I strive to give patients the most comprehensive and compassionate care with careful attention to each woman’s individual needs and concerns. I also hope to provide the most evidence-based, up-to-date care possible. A new diagnosis of cancer can be overwhelming and I hope to provide each woman with the necessary information and guidance to achieve the best outcome possible.

I grew up in La Crosse, WI and then after my training returned to the Midwest to practice in Chicago, IL, and then La Crosse, WI, before moving to the Twin Cities with my family. My husband is from Chicago and we are excited to be back in a metropolitan area. We enjoy going to music and sporting events. We have four large dogs and three kids and never lack excitement in our home! I enjoy running and biking and spending time with my family.
