General Information

Community Involvement
I am active as a parent in Valley Athletic Association and my children’s schools. I am a member of Church of the Risen Savior, active in the Apple Valley Rotary Club and ringside physician for mixed martial arts and boxing events.

Why did you choose this field of medicine?
I chose family medicine to help people throughout their lifetime, practicing a wide breadth of medicine and proactively preventing disease rather than practicing solely reactive medicine. I also enjoy being on the front line of allopathic medicine.
