I joined the  Department of Otolaryngology in 1988 and am a founding member of the Lions Voice Clinic of the University of Minnesota. I have a  focus on the use of Botulinum toxin in the treatment of laryngeal and oromandibular dystonia.   I currently see patients with voice and swallowing disorders at the university one day a week.
