I am a board-certified physician specializing in pediatrics. My professional interests include genetics, newborns, adolescent care and chronic medical conditions such as ADHD and asthma.
Hometown: Cottage Grove, MN
Best part of my work: Supporting and connecting with children and their families.
Why I became a physician: My interest in genetics led me to research projects in pediatrics. This sparked my life-long interest in providing care for children and their families.
What I tell my friends and family: Stay active, eat healthy and wash your hands!
How I spend my free time: Playing and watching soccer, exploring beautiful natural places, dates with my husband, quality time with my two children, and adventures with my friends.
What patients say about me: "Will you come to my birthday party?" from a 5-year old girl. "Will you come over and babysit?" from an 8-year old boy.
Favorite health tip: Stay active, eat healthy and wash your hands!
Practice philosophy: Provide quality compassionate care for children and young adults with respect for their time and unique situations.
