Hometown: Minneapolis, MN
Practice philosophy: I believe that health care is a partnership; I strive to collaborate with my patients to set health care goals and work together to achieve them.
If I wasn't a provider, I would be a: food critic. I love trying new foods and exploring and learning about how different flavors and ingredients complement each other in a dish or meal.
Why did you become a provider? I became a provider because I was excited by the prospect of partnering with patients to create and maintain the healthiest life possible. I knew a career in health care was for me when I was in high school and I have actively pursued my goal of becoming a nurse practitioner since then.
One of the challenges of this career that I enjoy is: the ever-changing and emerging evidence for best practice. I enjoy how much it keels me on my toes, and it ensures that I never stop learning.
My personal health goal is: to work toward consuming a more plant-dominant diet.
