I was a partner at Northern Orthopedics in Brainerd for 12 years. While there, I provided outreach in Wadena for 11 years. I have been married to my wife, Becky, for more than 20 years. We have three children: Nole, Cally, and Owen. We also have a golden retriever named Izzy.

What inspired you to get into medicine?
Both of my parents were involved in health care, so I was exposed to it early on. I was interested in the science behind everything and in the ability of physicians to have such a positive impact on patients’ lives.

Why did you choose Tri-County Health Care?
I am excited to be able to work full time in Wadena. I love the patients in this area and am excited about the opportunity to bring the ability to do joint replacement surgery in Wadena.

What do you like to do in your downtime?
I spend as much time as I can with my family. I coach youth soccer. I like to exercise, including road biking, mountain biking, water skiing and downhill skiing.

What is one interesting, unique or fun thing that most people may not know about you?
I spent six months living in Oslo while I completed my sports fellowship. I went with Becky and Nole and Cally (who were 3 and 1 at the time). It was an incredible experience. Also, my favorite food is Eggo waffles!
