What inspired you to get into medicine?
I cannot say there was one defining moment but many together that sparked my interest in medicine. Like anyone, I have had family members and close friends with health issues. That, along with an interest in science, led me to medicine.

What do you like to do in your downtime?
I try to spend most of my spare time with my husband and kids. We, as a family, enjoy exploring Minnesota and the outdoors. I love the lakes, water sports, fishing, etc.

What is one interesting, unique or fun thing that most people may not know about you?
I am left handed.
