Bio

What are your specialties and certifications?

Board Certified in Family Medicine

Why did you go into medicine? Why did you choose your particular field?

I decided to go into medicine because I believe in living a life of service to the people around me. Medicine addresses people's basic needs in a very effective way. Being a doctor is a way for me to be able to give back to my community every day. I love complex systems and the process of optimizing them and managing people's health is being part of one of the most complex systems out there. I also love the relationships that, as health care professionals, we build over time. This really made it easy to choose family medicine. I think primary care has the biggest impact on the largest population of people. I can care for someone of any age, any social situation, anywhere in the world. I feel like I can get to know individuals over time and really customize my care to them in order to meet their most basic and core healthcare needs. Being a doctor, I never get bored because the problems that I deal with are so diverse. I love taking care of people from the moment they are born until the end of their life, and I love taking care of family systems, as our health is so influenced by our social situation and the people around us. I get to work in multiple environments, the clinic, the hospital, long term care facilities, and in administrative roles.

What are some of your clinical interests?

I really enjoy taking care of whole families across the lifespan. My pediatric practice is very strong, I am lucky to continue to be able to do inpatient pediatrics and newborn care as well as well child checkups and sick visits. I feel strongly that preventative medicine is the base of good health so I really enjoy doing wellness visits and counseling. As I believe that mental health is the key to good health in general, I get a lot out of improving people's mental health and coordinating their mental healthcare. I enjoy procedural medicine especially doing dermatologic procedures, women's health procedures, and joint injections. I tend to do a lot of women's health in my practice as well. I am doing a lot more work in improving healthy behaviors and helping people with diet and exercise goals as well as weight loss.

What do you love about practicing medicine?

I love forming relationships with my patients and optimizing their individual health. I also love making a positive impact on the health behaviors of people in my community.

"I can care for someone of any age, any social situation, anywhere in the world."

What is your philosophy of care?

By forming strong relationships with people I can improve their health behaviors that influence their physical and emotional well-being. I would like to provide high quality, evidence based, individualized care to all of my clients to help them manage and prevent diseases and improve their personal wellness.

What do you most want people to know about the way you practice medicine?

I am very collaborative. I love educating people and helping them to make the best decisions they can about their healthcare and overall well being. I really believe that empowering my entire team to provide the highest level of care strengthens the patient experience and overall health.

What can your patients expect during an appointment?

They will be part of a well coordinated care team. My nurses help me to provide excellent care and they begin that process well before a patient arrives for an appointment. They can expect to spend time with my nurse identifying care gaps that need to be closed and verifying their medications, health habits, and new additions to their health history. I am there to focus on their overall well-being as well as problem solve their current concerns. They can expect me to be focused on their care and actively involve them in decision making. They can expect to be provided with a good summary of what the plan is as well as education about what they can do to improve their care.

What do you wish you could tell every patient (and they would actually do) and why?

That my team is here for them. That we love feedback on how we can improve our care. That we want to know what they feel like they can change and what they think will be too difficult for them to implement. That we are here to provide the most up to date recommendations with the best information available, and they then can use that information to better their health.

What have your patients taught you?

My patients teach me things every day. They show me how strong people can be in the face of adversity. They show me that making behavior changes is possible even when it is incredibly difficult. They teach me about kindness and the importance of human connections in life. They teach me how to experience joy and how to experience grief. They teach me tolerance and acceptance.

"I love taking care of people from the moment they are born until the end of their life."

Who is someone you admire, and why?

I really admire my nurse. She is an incredibly strong person despite incredible adversity. She continues to care for others and be present as a friend, caregiver, and excellent community member. She really is the embodiment of someone who gives more than she takes.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up mostly in rural Wisconsin.

What brought you to the Bitterroot Valley?

My husband's family is from eastern Montana. The mountains had been calling to me.

What do you enjoy about living and working in a small community like ours?

This is such an amazing small community. The people here are so involved and invested in making this town a better place. People are warm and open. It is small enough that you can get really involved in improving it and really have an impact on its people. I love running into the people that I care for when I am out and about. It really helps me deliver more customized care to them.

Living in such a close-knit community, how do you create a successful work–life balance?

I have really clear work/life boundaries that I am able to maintain by structuring my work environment. I feel like people are really respectful of that because they get to see me as a regular person out in their community living a life beyond work. They see me with my kids and husband and realize that I am not just a physician but I am a mother and partner as well. This actually makes it easier to maintain a balance.

What are some of your non-professional interests and favorite hobbies?

I love snowboarding, yoga, knitting, running, gardening, hiking, and spending time with friends and family.

Is there anything about you that might surprise people?

I was a piano performance major as an undergrad. I really like a good pun.

What would be your personal motto?

Be open, warm, and accepting.

Do you have pets?

I used to have dogs but now I have too many little children. I will probably have another dog in the next couple of years when my children are a little older.
