Summary

I received a BS in chemistry and completed medical school at the University of Wisconsin. I then completed my residency in psychiatry, and my post-doctoral fellowship in mood disorders here at the University of Minnesota.

I am an adult psychiatrist and focus on mood disorders, traumatic brain injury, and treatment-resistant depression. I am board certified in psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology.

Within the department, I supervise and teach residents, medical students, and Pharm-D candidates on the inpatient psychiatric service. I also interview for the psychiatry residency program and sit on the residency review committee. In 2016, I was named Psychiatry Residency “Teacher of the Year.”
