- Where are you from?
- I was born in Billings and raised in Colstrip.
- What are your learning and teaching interest areas?
- My primary area of interest is in ensuring access to quality care in rural Montana.
- What excites you the most about starting residency?
- I am really excited to be part of the Billings Clinic Internal Medicine Residency Program as I believe in our shared mission and am proud of the success achieved by the program thus far. It is my hope that I can contribute to the work being done on all levels of the organization to ensure exceptional training, thoughtful patient care, and unique approaches to healthcare delivery.
- How do you spend your time outside of work?
- My husband and I have two young children, ages four and seven, thus a great deal of our time revolves around their numerous activities. Additionally, we all enjoy frequent family escapes to the mountains, camping/hiking/fishing in the summer and downhill skiing in the winter.
- What are some of your academic achievements?
- I believe my most significant achievement in medical school was being selected to receive the Tow Humanism in Medicine Award for my graduating medical class. This award recognized one graduating medical student who best demonstrated compassion in the delivery of care, respect for patients, their families and health care colleagues as well as demonstrated clinical excellence. While I would strive for such qualities without such acknowledgement, this award inspired me to continually focus not only on the science of medicine, but also on humanity itself.
