Physician Assistant Certified from the NCCPA

Undergraduate: Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison

Graduate: Master of Physician Assistant Studies from Sullivan University

I chose to become a Physician Assistant because of the ability to interact with people on a daily basis with the intention of improving their lives through providing quality health care.

Being a Physician Assistant allows me to connect with people and collaborate with them to make healthy choices that will create a lasting impact on their overall physical and mental health.

Watertown Regional Medical Center is my first job after graduating from PA school in June 2020.

I enjoy traveling, hiking, biking, yoga, crafting, and spending time with family, friends, and my aussiedoodle puppy named Finn.

Selection of a health care provider is a personal choice. Most or all of the health care providers performing services in this Hospital are independent contractors who have privileges to practice at the Hospital but they are not Hospital employees, representatives or agents. This includes but is not limited to radiologists, pathologists, emergency physicians, anesthesiologists, hospitalists, surgeons and others. Independent contractors are responsible for their own actions and the Hospital is not liable for the acts or omissions of any such independent contractors.

If understanding the relationship between your Health Care Provider and this Hospital is important to you, you may ask your Health Care Provider.
