I was drawn to emergency medicine because of my desire to help heal people in their greatest time of need. I enjoy the variety of practice and am focused on finding the best solutions to anything that might come through our doors. In my administrative role as Associate Medical Director of Quality, I oversee quality of care for the HealthPartners health plan. My goal is to educate both patients and providers on quality of care issues and strive toward the triple aim in healthcare: affordable, quality care with the best patient experience possible.

Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, spending time with family and friends, and learning to cook new types and styles of food for them.

* American Medical Association (AMA)
* Minnesota Medical Association (MMA)
* Twin Cities Medical Society (TCMS)
