    What I Do
    My goal is to provide excellent individualized care, helping my patients navigate what is often the most challenging and vulnerable time in their lives. A clinical interest of mine is emergency general surgery.

    Why I Love My Work
    I have always worked with my hands and I enjoy learning about and treating surgical disease. I went into medicine because I wanted to make a profound difference in the lives of others. The opportunity to meet and help new people every day is rewarding.

    Getting to Know Me
    I came to CentraCare for the opportunity to practice in a solid health care system and in a community that is great for my family. Outside of work, I enjoy fishing, playing racquetball and spending time with family.

    I have a background in economics and have a prior career working in a family flooring business before going into medicine.
