    Biography

    What I Do
    As a primary care provider, I pledge to provide compassionate, respectful, and up-to-date, comprehensive care for diverse patients of all ages. I continuously strive to build relationships with my patients and create individualized plans that achieve desired outcomes. My clinical interests include health promotion and disease prevention, chronic disease management, caring for families, and dermatology.

    Why I Love My Work
    I have always been interested in learning about the complexities of the human body. Being in medicine allows me to use this knowledge to make a positive impact on my patients’ lives. As I continued my education, I chose to specialize in Family Medicine because I wanted to treat patients across their lifespan. What I enjoy most about my job is learning about each patient’s story and history and combining that with my knowledge to help them get the best outcome from their medical care.

    Getting to Know Me
    I was born and raised in a small Central Minnesota town and, because of that, I have a strong desire to better the community by working for social justice in health care and community engagement. When I am not working, I enjoy hanging out with family and friends, traveling, and anything outdoors – especially hunting, backpacking, and biking. As avid backpackers, my wife and I like taking our two Vizslas to the mountains.
