I am a board-certified nurse practitioner specializing in family medicine. I have professional interests in preventive care, asthma and women's health. I offer face-to-face virtual visits for a variety of health services and conditions.
I am the care team partner of Mark Valgemae, MD. As a care team, one physician and one advance practice clinician share in a patient's care and actively manage how they deliver care together.
Hometown: Lake Park, MN
Best part of my work: Seeing a patient at a follow-up visit who feels better because of a plan we made together.
Why I became a nurse practitioner: To help patients reach and maintain their health.
What I tell friends and family: If you would benefit from a lifestyle change, make that change gradually.
How I spend my free time: Spending time with family and friends, especially outside. I enjoy gardening in the summer, snowboarding in the winter and reading a good book any time of the year.
What patients say about me: I have been told that I am a good listener, that I explain things so that they are easy to understand and patients appreciate my enthusiasm.
Favorite health tip: Wash your hands frequently.
Practice philosophy: To teach and empower patients so they feel that they can confidently and successfully manage their health.
