Professional Interests

Interventional Oncology and women's health!


Sports (volleyball is my favorite to play, football and basketball are my favorite to watch!)


Bingewatching TV shows and movies (Marvel and horror are my favs)

What are your favorite things to do in the Denver area?

I love going on short/easy hikes (still getting used to the altitude) and exploring the food scene.

What did you do before getting into medicine (Radiology)

I was born and raised in Inver Grove Heights, MN (suburb outside of St. Paul). I went to Northwestern University for undergrad then worked as a medical scribe for 2 yrs. I then completed a Master's in Biomedical Sciences at Rosalind Franklin University where I later attended medical school. The end of M1 year is when I discovered Radiology and began to focus my efforts in that field. I took a gap year between M2 and M3 doing research in Interventional Radiology at Northwestern with a focus on Interventional Oncology.

A few fun facts: I love playing volleyball, kickboxing, singing/music, and watching tons of Netflix! I have three fur babies: 1 bunny (Bella) and 2 kitties (Sadie and Orion). Yes, they all get along!
