- About Me
I graduated from Des Moines University PA program in 2001 and am NCCPA certified. I’ve lived in MT for 25 years and am currently practicing Primary Care in Stevensville, MT. Through my career, I’ve worked in orthopedics, urgent care and emergency medicine primarily in rural communities throughout Montana.
My hobbies include spending time with my husband and 2 teenage daughters in the outdoors hiking, camping, running, skiing, snowboarding, surfing, rafting and kayaking. I also enjoy drawing and painting.
- Global Health Experience
I volunteered with Missoula Medical Aid on 2 separate medical missions in rural communities in Honduras, two weeks each in 2004 and 2008. We worked in rural villages through the organization Save The Children providing medical screenings, education, basic medical care and coordinated referrals of those in need.
I volunteered on a 3 week medical mission in Kenya, Africa (Homa bay area) through Spring of Hope International in 2017. We traveled to remote villages visiting anywhere from 1-4 villages a day. The focus was on providing health screenings to children in primary schools, education on basic hygiene and disease prevention given the limited resources available. One day was spent working in a local prison providing basic medical care to the prisoners and another day spent in an HIV community doing the same.
