What inspired you to get into medicine?
My grandfather was diagnosed with prostate cancer when I was in elementary school. I often accompanied him for his radiation treatments, and I quickly developed a love for the hospital environment. I combined that with my interest in human biology and made the decision to eventually attend medical school.
What do you like to do in your downtime?
When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and kids, watching any of their activities and just being together at home or at the lake. I also enjoy being with extended family, cooking and gardening.
What is one interesting, unique or fun thing that most people may not know about you?
I am an avid sports fan, especially when it comes to the MN Vikings and MN Wild.
