What is your practice philosophy? I work to educate and form meaningful relationships with my patients so that, together, we can make decisions about their health and well-being.
Hometown: Shoreview, MN
If I wasn’t a provider, I would be a: Travel writer- I enjoy traveling to new places in the US and abroad, immersing myself into the culture and trying many new foods!
Why did you become a provider? When did you know this was the career for you? I became a family physician because I enjoy the variety within medicine that I see and enjoy having the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with patients and their families. This specialty is unique because providers can follow a patient from birth through the end of life and I find it very rewarding to have these personal relationships strengthen over time.
Something I have learned from my patients is: To listen! Everybody has a unique story and different goals. It is important to individualize care.
My personal health goal is: Stay active—even 10 minutes of exercise a day is beneficial for your health!
What are you most proud of? Participating in medical missions trips to Ghana, Kenya, Belize and India. I am passionate about global health and providing care to underserved populations.
