I am thankful for the opportunity to provide thorough and patient-specific treatment with a focus on improving patient’s quality of life. I truly value the patient’s perspective and employ a collaborative approach when developing our treatment plan.
I have a particular interest in treating osteoarthritis of the hip and knees including conservative treatments such as corticosteroid/viscosupplement injections as well as surgical intervention including anterior approach total hip replacement and knee replacement. My training allows me to independently treat patients in the hospital and office setting as well as assist in the operating room. I enjoy working collaboratively with physicians to ensure each patient receives the most effective treatment plan. My prior experience as an orthopaedic trauma physician assistant for 4.5 years treating patient’s with wide range of injuries/fractures has allowed for significant growth as a provider.
I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family including my husband, son and lab/border collie. We enjoying visiting my sisters in Iowa and Minnesota where we frequent the dog parks, go boating and swimming.
