My Areas of Practice
My interest in dermatology developed through work in health policy and access to medical care.  A natural focus on sun exposure, sunburn protection, and skin cancer emerged and led to my specialty training in dermatopathology.   As a dermatopathologist, I examine biopsy specimens under the microscope in order to confirm skin cancer diagnoses.  In addition to my medical dermatology clinics, I also teach residents and medical students at the University of Minnesota and serve on medical education advisory boards.  My dermatology practice encourages patients to take an active role in skin cancer screening and prevention both for themselves and their loved ones.

My interests in health policy and dedication to underserved patient populations translate into participation on many national and international research projects.  Away from the office, I enjoy a great yoga practice and outdoor sports.  Patients have greeted me in airport lounges and spotted me running around the city’s lakes.
