I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelors Degree in Medical Technology, a Masters Degree in Public Health and then a Medical Degree. I moved from Minnesota to Oregon after Medical School and fell in love with it. I completed my Residency training at Oregon Health Sciences University and am Board Certified in Internal Medicine. I have raised three wonderful children here in Roseburg and they are now grown. I love to travel, garden and exercise. I also served in the Peace Corps in Botswana in 2012-2014, teaching Life Skills to high school students.
