What inspired you to get into medicine?
I have a number of reasons for deciding to pursue a career in medicine. I'm a caretaker by nature, have a fascination with science and have family members with different unique medical experiences.

What can your patients expect from you when coming in for an appointment?
I understand that medicine can be a hard thing to understand and I am here to help. I want to provide options and find the right answer for their health.

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. If I have free time, I like to read and spend time with friends.

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