Physician Assistant


I received my bachelor's degree in exercise science with an emphasis on sports medicine from the U of MN - Duluth, then worked as a clinical and high school certified athletic trainer before getting my master's degree in physician assistant studies from Emory University School of Medicine. With a background with sports medicine and athletics I was drawn to orthopedics and sports medicine field. It's rewarding to see patients present to the office with a sports injury, to be directly involved with repairing what's broken and to get them back to the activities they love. Keeping a patient active can also indirectly help prevent other problems such as hypertension or heart disease. I find orthopedics multi-faceted and exciting.
