I grew up in Milwaukee, WI, immersed in music and arts. I received a BFA from the University of Minnesota: Twin Cities. After several years of traveling as an active musician and working as a photographer in New York City, I realized I had developed a serious, and undeniable, interest in medicine. This interest led to my return to school; I obtained a certificate in pre-medical studies through the post-baccalaureate program at Columbia University. From there, I was accepted into medical school at Brown University in Providence, RI. After completing my medical degree in Rhode Island, I was drawn to Anchorage by the inspiring training offered by the Alaska Family Medicine Residency and the extraordinary setting of Alaska. After residency in 2017, eager to stay in Alaska, I was fortunate to be offered a position with The Alaska Hospitalist Group. I have long admired the compassionate and thorough care of hospitalized Alaskans the group provides and feel grateful to be part of this community of physicians. I have worked with The Alaska Hospitalist Group at both Mat-Su Regional Medical Center and currently at Providence Alaska Medical Center. I continue to find great satisfaction as a member of the wonderfully diverse Anchorage community, while also enjoying the outdoor adventures to which we are fortunate to have ready access here in Alaska.
