I am an Occupational Medicine and Infectious Diseases (ID) physician working for a large multi-specialty clinic in Minnesota. After graduating from the University of Minnesota Medical School, I completed Internal Medicine residency at the University of Minnesota, serving as chief resident at Regions Hospital 1999-2000. I completed fellowship in Infectious Diseases in 2002 and worked in clinical infectious diseases for ~15 years for HealthPartners and then switched career paths mid-career. I completed a residency in Occupational & Environmental Medicine at HealthPartners (St. Paul, MN) and completed a Masters in Public Health at the University of Minnesota in 2019. I have a strong interest in One Health/ Conservation Medicine research and practice. I have a passion for teaching in clinical and non-clinical settings, building systems and relationships, working collaboratively across disciplines, all ultimately to improve the health of people, animals and the environment.
I am a Clinical Scholar Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota Medical School.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, exploring the outdoors and trying to avoid (sometimes unsuccessfully) the infections I have treated in clinic and the hospital.
