"I was born and raised in the Twin Cities and feel lucky to have the opportunity to live and practice medicine in such a special place. I cannot imagine living with my husband and three children anywhere else. Some of my favorite things include gardening, biking, going to the movies, and reading a good book with a hot cup of coffee."
