I’ve been working for the past 6 years at the Fairview Wyoming clinic in primary care and as the pulmonary rehab program medical director. My special clinical interests include hormone therapy for transgender and nonbinary patients, pharmacogenetic testing mostly for psychiatric medications, and medical cannabis certification. Before medical school, I went to graduate school for genetics, which remains an area of research interest for me. I haven’t been too involved in research while working in community practice, but I did participate in a clinical study looking at pharmacogenetics of hypertension medications. I’ve precepted a handful of medical and NP students in clinic over the past few years, and I look forward to getting more involved in teaching in my new position.
