Summary

I received my BA from Cornell College, Iowa, and received my medical degree from Saint Louis University School of Medicine, Saint Louis, Missouri. I completed my residency in psychiatry from the University of California San Francisco – Fresno, California. I further completed my neuromodulation medicine fellowship here at the University of Minnesota, where I was its inaugural fellow.

I am an adult psychiatrist with a focus on TMS. My unique interest in TMS is understanding TMS's mechanism in order to design optimal protocols and understand biomarkers for TMS clinical response to help make the best care decisions for patients. Neuromodulation has been of interest to me since my work at a perinatal mental health clinic in California where I took care of women who were pregnant or had recently given birth who were always interested in the latest non medication treatments. This really inspired me to become skilled to work with pts who don't fully respond to medications. I provide and monitor neuromodulation techniques such as ECT, TMS, and VNS.

Within the department, I am a member of the Diversity & Inclusion Committee.
