    What I Do 

    I aim to provide care that is modern and based on the current best medical science and delivered with a personalized and empathetic touch. My clinical interests include endoscopic procedures, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, Clostridium difficile infection and gut microbiome.  

    Why I Love My Work 

    I was motivated to go into medicine because I enjoy science, solving mysteries and getting to know people. The hands-on, technical aspect of endoscopy and the complexities of the liver and digestive process have interested me ever since my first exposure to the specialty of gastroenterology in medical school. I have never lost that interest.  

    One of the things I enjoy most about my job is getting to know each patient’s story. I also enjoy endoscopic procedures and gathering as much information as I can from these tests. The size and quality of the GI group led me to join CentraCare in 1999.  

    Getting to Know Me 

    I like central Minnesota because it is close to the Twin Cities, the lakes and North Woods region and my family in North Dakota. Outside of work, I enjoy biking, photography, genealogy, reading history and biographies, gardening, horseback riding and amateur cooking.
