I was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada but moved to the US as a toddler and grew up in a small town called Mankato in Minnesota. I am a “double gopher”, completing both my undergraduate degree and medical school at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
I completed a 9-month rural rotation in my third year of medical school which solidified my desire to practice rural full-scope family medicine. I am excited to serve a diverse group of patients and to continue to develop the creative problem-solving skills needed in under-resourced communities.
I hope to incorporate obstetrics, hospital medicine, and emergency medicine into my practice. I have never been to Alaska, but am confident that I will love the wild and endless beauty of the “last frontier”, and look forward to finally see the northern lights. Outside of medicine, I love running and biking, backpacking and camping with my husband Wayland, playing with my Aussiedoodle Rigby, and eating delicious food with family and friends.
