My Areas of Practice
I am an ENT specialist with fellowship training in head and neck cancer and microvascular reconstruction.
I treat all aspects of the ears, nose, and throat in patients of all ages, with specialized expertise in the comprehensive care of head and neck tumors (eg. carcinoma of the upper aerodigestive tract, parotid and other salivary glands, thyroid, soft tissues of the neck, and skin). I have a particular interest in facial (eg. post-Mohs), oral cavity, and larynx / pharynx reconstruction following cancer removal and trauma.
I believe it is my duty to provide up-to-date medical knowledge and excellent surgical skills, so that together with compassionate care from the whole Park Nicollet team, we can best meet the goals of our patients.

I grew up in Baltimore and lived in Boston, DC, New York, and Seattle before coming to the Midwest during my medical training. My husband and I loved it here, and wanted to stay. We started our family with a puppy, which was good preparation for our toddler. I enjoy reading, drawing and painting, gardening, and travelling. I think food is a very important part of culture, so I make a point of exploring local markets and trying local cuisine when I travel. I think this makes me particularly responsive to the personal and social disruptions that my patients with swallowing difficulties encounter. My interest in portraiture also makes me sensitive to the importance of facial appearance and expression.
