I am a board-certified family nurse practitioner with professional interests in pediatrics, contraception management, weight management and women's health.
Hometown: Maple Grove, MN
I'm passionate about: seeing people progress. There's a sense of accomplishment in moving forward in life and I love that I'm part of that process.
I became a nurse practitioner because: I enjoy getting to know my patients during the time we spend together. When I was in junior high I knew I wanted to pursue a career in medicine to help people become more whole.
I've learned from my patients to: never take your life or health for granted, and keep laughing, it's the best medicine around.
One of the challenges of my career I enjoy is: that I'm able to learn something new every day; whether it's about a patient or diagnosis, I get so much life out of learning.
My personal health goal is: to eat a healthy diet, stay active and maintain a healthy weight.
The best thing I've done for my health is: to breastfeed my babies. This has helped to protect the health of myself and my kids. I truly believe this is one of the best investments I have ever made. It accelerates recovery from birth, reduces stress and aides in weight loss; reduces the long term risk of many cancers, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
I'm most proud of: my kids. They are my pride and joy, and there is no greater blessing in life.
I'm proud to have achieved: getting my master's degree while working, giving birth twice and moving across the state. I feel accomplished for all I was able to do in that short amount of time.
