    What I Do
    My philosophy of care is prevention is better than a cure. Medicine provides me the opportunity to practice in a dynamic that allows me to have a trusting relationship with my patients that is unlike any other profession. My special clinical interests are in men’s health, adolescent health, and infectious diseases.

    Why I Love My Work
    The best part of my work is my colleagues and my patients. I appreciate the opportunity to practice in a specialty that provides a real opportunity to connect with patients and allows me to partner with them on a journey to achieving good health.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work I enjoy Capoeira, dance, art history, baseball, softball, running, and traveling.

    I chose CentraCare for the opportunity to practice Family Medicine in a manner that reflects the original philosophy of the specialty, caring for the whole of the patient.
