What inspired you to get into medicine?
I grew up in a rural area. When we went to the clinic, we were seen by nurse practitioners. I knew from a very young age that that was what I wanted to do. I have always been drawn to a profession that allowed me to care for others, especially in a time of great need.

What do you like to do in your down time?
I enjoy outdoor activities such as walking my dogs, jogging and downhill and cross-country skiing. I also enjoy spending time with family friends, especially at the lake. I read to relax in the evenings.

What is one interesting, unique or fun thing that most people may not know about you?
I grew up on a farm in rural North Dakota. Our family showed cattle across the Midwest and in Canada. We also showed horses locally.
