Professional Training:


  • Undergraduate: Northern Michigan University
  • Medical School: University of Utah
  • Residency: Sinai Hospital

I grew up and went to school in the midwest including 4 years at Northern Michigan University in Marquette and medical school at the University of Utah. I did my residency training at Sinai Hospital in Detroit.

After a short time in the Detroit area, I moved to Salt Lake and I was on faculty at the University of Utah for 17 years. In 2005 I went into private practice in Oregon, and moved back to Salt Lake in 2006 to open a private practice, only seeing patients for EMG consultation. I also work doing medical reviews (preauthorizations, pharmacy reviews etc.) i am a lifelong Packer fan.

I love to cook and bake and plan fine dining events for family and friends including the yearly Fajitas Party in the summer and the Christmas Cookie Party in December. I have a particular interest in using fine dark chocolate and artisanal honeys.

I also enjoy counted cross stitch and tending to hundreds of drought resistant perennials in my grass free yards.
