I grew up in Wisconsin and have always been interested in helping people in some capacity. I began as a school psychologist and worked in this field for ten years prior to switching to medicine.
My interests are in geriatric care. I believe that one should be straight forward with the individuals they are caring for. Patients should be aware of all their options as well as the risks and benefits associated with proposed treatment plans. They should also have significant input into their own care.
I have always been an outdoor enthusiast and when I am able to find free time from my two young daughters, one can find me hiking, biking, skiing, or windsurfing.
