I am a certified physician assistant with professional interests in women's health, adolescent medicine and preventive care. I offer face-to-face virtual visits for a variety of health services and conditions.
Hometown: Cambridge, MN
I became a provider because: I wanted to be in a career where I was never done learning. Medicine is always changing and improving, which makes it exciting to think about how those changes can impact lives for the better.
A fact most people don't know about me is: that I grew up on a family farm that has been in our family for five generations.
Something I have learned from my patients is: that everyone has a unique story. It's important to listen and ask the right questions in order to fully understand.
My favorite travel destination is: Hawaii. I was fortunate to spend some time in Maui and my favorite experience there was the whale watching. The whales swam right under our boat!
One of the challenges of this career that I enjoy is: educating patients and giving them the knowledge and tools to become their own health advocates.
The best health advice I have received is: that the only bad workout is the one that didn't happen. Whether you are a marathon runner or someone who walks 20 minutes after supper, the most important thing is that you are up and moving!
