What is your practice philosophy? I believe that the practice of medicine is a shared experience between the medical team and the patient. The staff I work with and I are trained in evidence based medicine, and our knowledge/skills are most effectively applied by working together with our patients to address their ailments in a manner that is respectful of their goals, values, and abilities.
What are you passionate about? And why? I find passion in creativity, building, and growing. I enjoy the journey from an idea to the end point.
If I wasn’t a provider, I would be a: Maybe an Animator because I am fascinated by the depth of detail in the artistic medium and feel it is uniquely able to breathe life into creative ideas.
Why did you become a provider? When did you know this was the career for you? I became a provider because I saw the career path as an opportunity to be fulfilled, challenged, and proud. Fulfilled by the ability to help people, challenged by lifelong learning and scientific study, and proud of a dedication to leave a positive impact.
Something I have learned from my patients is: I learn from my patients every day. The world is a melting pot and there are so many ways to navigate it. I have found it a privilege to have a window into the lives of others through my work, and learn from the way others live their lives all of the time!
One of the challenges of this career that I enjoy is (and why): The broad scope of the primary care office is one of my favorite parts of the job, but can be quite challenging as well. I love the spectrum of challenges that each day can present, and I’ll say that I never get bored!
My personal health goal is: My goal is to be kind to my body and mind by eating right, exercising, and living a life of moderation.
What are you most proud of? I am most proud of my medical training. I worked my tail off for the better part of a decade to enter the profession and am proud of the dedication and focus I employed throughout the process .
What are a few of your personal achievements?
-My band and I got together with the goal of playing the Blue Ox music festival in Eau Claire and in 2021 we made the bill!
-I moved to Chicago for medical school in 2015 without knowing anybody. I made so many great friends and had a real coming of age experience during my time there.
-I met and fell in love with my lovely wife and take pride in each part of the journey sharing a life with her.
