Contact Information

What was your background before coming to IFM?
I received my doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Bastyr in 2011. In the course of my studies, I did a month-long study abroad program in China where I studied Chinese herbs. I completed my residency with IFM Director of Medical Education Kristi Hughes, ND, at the Dynamic Healing Center in Alexandria, MN. In addition to working for IFM, I am also in private practice in Elk River, MN.

How would members of the IFM community know you?
If you use documents and resources the IFM member toolkit, I probably had a role in their creation and development. I contribute writing and editing and have developed the N Sight handouts, the IFM food plan suites, and the documents associated with IFM's practice implementation coursework.

What would the IFM community be surprised to learn about you?
I am the 2nd oldest of 10 siblings. My family is an important part of my life, and I'm always active with family gatherings and events.
