Before attending graduate school, I worked as a nursing assistant for five years and enjoyed volunteering with the Muscular Dystrophy Association. I grew up in the Verndale area and graduated from Verndale High School. I am grateful to be back in my hometown near my parents, family and youngest brother. I also have a golden retriever named Jenny who is my pride and joy!
What inspired you to get into medicine?
Since high school, I enjoyed the biology classes, critical thinking, and lifelong learning that are important in science and medicine. I always admired the great health care in rural communities, which began during a health care internship after high school. This field has given me the opportunity to help promote healthy lifestyles and be there to help others through the many ups and downs in life.
Why choose Astera Health?
I always wanted to practice medicine in a supportive small town community. I was looking to be a part of a health care facility that continues to provide exceptional care to its patients along with having great providers, staff and nurses to provide this care. Astera offers all of this and much more.
What do you like to do in your downtime?
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, hunting, skiing and fishing. Outside of work, you can usually find me enjoying the beautiful lakes of Minnesota and supporting my brother at sporting events.
What is one interesting, unique or fun thing that most people may not know about you?
Music has always been a big part of my life and enjoy sharing it with others. I have played piano for 14 years and started playing at the age of 7. I continued this passion by completing a minor in piano.
