I became a physician assistant to practice in orthopedics. I enjoy treating all musculoskeletal problems. Being a former collegiate athlete, I have a special interest in sports medicine and have a strong team approach for patient care. I also have a strong interest in hand and upper extremity problems, and fracture care. I enjoy working with patients of all ages. Whether it be non-operative or operative management, my goal is to have patients return to their activities with the highest level of function. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two daughters and dog. I also enjoy all sports including golf, running, volleyball, and softball. I love to spend time at our cabin in the summer. I love to travel.
