Becoming a physician assistant was the perfect choice for me as the profession combines my two great passions: helping others and science. I enjoy getting to know my patients and helping them improve their overall well-being so they can live healthier and happier lives. As a physician assistant practicing in hospital medicine, I get the privilege of serving patients during some of their most vulnerable times.
I have been working at HealthPartners as a hospitalist since 2015. Originally from South Dakota, I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Minnesota obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutritional Science. I went on to complete my Master of Physician Assistant Science degree at Augsburg College graduating in 2014.
Along with patient care, education is another area that brings me immense joy and allows me to give back to a profession that has given me so much. I am honored to now serve as the Program Director for the Hospital Medicine APC Fellowship Program.
When I am not working, I relish my time in the simple moments as a wife and mom of two.
