Personal

I have been a pediatrician at Park Nicollet Clinic since 1985. I enjoy all areas of pediatrics from newborns through adolescents. I especially enjoy behavioral pediatrics and helping families through hard times. I received a certificate in psychopharmacology to increase my abilities to care for children with mental health issues. I enjoy teaching, mentoring, nurturing future leaders and helping to strengthen the culture of professionalism at Park Nicollet. In my spare time, I enjoy running, playing most sports, coaching and spending time with family.
