University of Minnesota Medical School
2nd Year Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellow

I am originally from New Prague, MN and attended the University of Minnesota Duluth where I received my undergraduate degree. I completed medical school, followed by Adult Psychiatry Residency training at the University of Minnesota. Staying in Minnesota for the Child and Adolescent Fellowship allows me to continue training in this beautiful state that I have grown up in and continue to love, especially given my interests in spending time outdoors with hiking, running, biking, gardening, etc. This program is also a great place to train. It combines a wide range of inpatient, outpatient, and specialty experiences offered with the unending support from colleagues and faculty to foster continued growth and learning, all while striving to achieve a work life balance that is unparalleled.
