Biography

University Attended:
My undergrad degree was in electrical engineering from North Dakota State University. Then it was on to medical school at the University of Minnesota. Finally, I completed my OB-Gyn residency at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Directly out of residency, I joined Partners OB-Gyn and have spent my entire career with our group.

 

About Me:

I love to travel and take adventure trips! I have hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Pichu in the Andes mountains of Peru. I love the Boundary waters, biking, and have been kick boxing for the past year. I am generally game for most things, but I have noticed that I don’t like “roughing it” as much as I did 10 years ago! I also love hanging out with my family and friends and just relaxing. Nothing beats that!

 

Education:
I have spent many years working in collaboration with the HealthEast care system. I started out heading up peer review then was elected OB department chair for 2 terms. I am finishing up my 6th year as President of the HealthEast medical staff and I also sit on the HealthEast board of directors. I have learned a lot about heath care policy and am committed to being part of shaping policy that keeps patients first and continually improves health care quality. I guess my motto would be: to whom much is given much is expected.

 

Why I Went Into This Field:
I am a breast cancer survivor, so I know the struggles with dealing with the medical system from both sides. I believe this drives my passion for advocating for patients. I was very lucky to have so much support from my patients as well as my friends and family.
