I am originally from Aberdeen, South Dakota. Academics, soccer, and a passion to help the underserved brought me to Sioux Falls where I completed my undergraduate education followed by a yearlong volunteer program. I received my medical degree from Touro University in California, and I completed residency training at Poudre Valley Hospital and Clinics in Fort Collins, Colorado.
My philosophy in medicine is to focus on wellness. I approach patient care by considering the whole person when thinking about diagnostic and treatment options. I take the responsibility of being your family physician to heart, and I truly enjoy caring for all ages. I incorporate osteopathy into patient care and take a functional approach to medicine.
When I’m not taking care of patients, I enjoy spending time outside, particularly with my dogs. I hike, ski, snowboard, and play soccer. I also have a passion for international medicine and enjoy traveling as a volunteer physician.
