I base my practice on the belief that patients should feel comfortable communicating with their physician. I encourage patient responsibility for their own health care and help them to make appropriate health care decisions with both dialogue and education.
I received my Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1994. In 1998, I received my Doctor of Podiatric Medicine Degree from Des Moines University in Iowa. I completed a Podiatric Orthopaedic Residency at the Veteran's Affairs Medical Center in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. I also completed a Preceptorship at the Community Foot Clinic in Albert Lea, Minnesota. I am Board Certified in Primary Podiatric Medicine and Podiatric Orthopaedics.
Professionally, I take special interest in diabetes mellitus, wound care and biomechanics.
Away from the clinic, I enjoy spending time with my husband and children. I also enjoy, when time allows, activities such as stamping, scrapbooking and spending time outdoors. One of my favorite pastimes is reading; to myself or my children.
