    Biography

    What I Do
    My philosophy of care is to treat patients as if they were my own family members. Growing up, I spent countless hours with my father learning how to fix just about anything. To be able to carry that over to people through surgery is very rewarding to me.

    Why I Love My Work
    While in college, I worked as a nursing assistant. This allowed me to help and care for patients. I found that the feeling you get from being a care provider is truly amazing. I enjoy interacting with patients and their families and helping them through a difficult situation.

    Getting to Know Me
    I am a native of Minnesota and I wanted to return after my medical training. Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, snowmobiling, hockey, classic cars and cooking.
