My Areas of Practice

My Practice:  

As a Family Physician, I find great fulfillment in caring for the primary care needs of all ages: from babies to children, teenagers, adults and often the whole family. Whether treating acute illness, managing chronic disease, or providing preventative health, I am enriched by the variety of patients I am privileged to serve. My goal is to establish trust as a provider through active listening, communication, and learning goals of care. I use these skills to partner with my patients in collaborating quality driven, evidence based outcomes in order to promote health and well-being. In addition to broad spectrum family medicine, I have special interests in pediatric and adolescent care, mental health, skin conditions, and sports/ musculoskeletal medicine. 

My Medical Education:

I received my Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree through Des Moines University.   I subsequently went on to complete residency training through the University of Minnesota, and I am currently Board Certified in Family Medicine.  I am often asked what a DO means and how this might impact patient care.  My patients find that I I practice similarly--if not the same--as other MDs in my specialty.  Often there is no difference. That being said, I chose osteopathic medicine as my foundation of medical education because of its emphasis on primary care and focus on treating the "whole" patient. I work hard to understand individual goals of care, and try to think broadly as far as diagnosis and management.

I am inspired by my wonderful family which includes my husband, 2 year-old daughter and 1-year old son. My family is my world, and enable me to be the best women, wife, mother, and physician I can be.  We live in Minnetonka with our dog Veishea. In my spare time, I enjoy cycling and running. In my past life (pre-kids), I enjoyed distance/ marathon running, and I plan on getting back to that at some point!  ;-) Now that I have young kids, just like many folks, I try to creatively incorporate physical activity in my daily routine. You'll often find my husband and I riding tandem bicycle (bicycle made for two) with attached kiddo trailer to and from activities around the community. It's quite the site!  If I have any additional spare time, I enjoy spending quality time with friends, learning, new experiences, and spending time up at the lakes.
