I enjoy treating all musculoskeletal problems.  I have a strong interest in hand and upper extremity problems and fracture care. Being a former collegiate athlete, I also have a special interest in sports medicine and have a strong team approach for patient 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 work and activities with the highest level of function.  I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters.  I spend a lot of time coaching my girl’s fastpitch softball teams year round and also coach basketball and volleyball.  I also enjoy running ½ marathons and working out.  When we are able to squeeze it in, I love to spend time at our cabin.  I love to travel.
