I received my BA from Vassar College in New York and received my medical degree here at the University of Minnesota, where I further completed my psychiatry residency in the neuroscience track.
I am an adult psychiatrist with a focus on psychosis. As the psychiatrist for the NAVIGATE program, I have the opportunity to work as part of a team providing therapeutic interventions above and beyond medication treatment for young people and their families experiencing their first episode of psychosis. The thing I find most rewarding is hearing from patients that they feel like themselves again, or from parents that they have their child back.
