    Biography

    What I Do
    After a rotation in plastic and reconstructive surgery during my physician assistant training, I knew I wanted to work in this field. I especially appreciated the reconstructive side of the specialty and quickly discovered that plastic surgeons do much more than I could have imagined. Working from head to toe, I recognized the variety and depth of the specialty and what could be done to help people. In addition, I enjoy the cosmetic aspect of the field, helping to improve patients' self-image and confidence.

    My main goal as a physician assistant is to make sure that my patients are receiving the best possible care. Through a collaborative approach, I listen to the concerns of patients and then work with them to determine the best plan to obtain the most beneficial outcome.

    Why I Love My Work
    The best part about practicing medicine is developing relationships with patients, understanding how I can be of help to them, and watching my care have a beneficial and positive impact on their lives, especially within the realm of plastic and reconstructive surgery, where procedures can be life-altering.

    Getting to Know Me
    Originally from Ohio, I knew exactly what kind of practice I wanted to join after completing my physician assistant training. I found it in Central Minnesota with Midsota Plastic Surgery! I like that Midsota is a broad practice, and I have the opportunity to work with a wide variety of patients and conditions. I feel grateful to be working on a team with highly skilled and respected providers, as well as support staff who always go above and beyond in putting patients first.

    Outside of work, I like to play soccer, do yoga, hike and explore the outdoors and experiment with new recipes.
