My Passion for Healthcare

I started seriously thinking about being a physician in high school. I grew up on a small dairy farm in Montana, helping my dad and brother with the daily chores. Taking care of animals was rewarding, but I realized I wanted to learn more about medicine and work with people - its hard to have conversations with cows. The most rewarding part of my work is partnering with my patients to improve their health. Also, I love to work in an environment where I can teach students and residents. They continue to challenge my knowledge and skills which helps me provide better care to patients.

My Clinical Focus

I enjoy all areas of medicine and all patients from the young to the elderly. While I did additional training in obstetrics and provide maternity care, many of my patients are traditional primary care. This includes children I helped deliver, their parents, and grandparents; and those that are healthy that I see only a few times a year to those that have serious conditions that need more frequent visits. The medical residents we train for family medicine share the same diversity of patients. Our joy is to help patients get the care they need to feel their best.
