Since 2001, I’ve helped solved medical problems for thousands of individuals in a primary care outpatient setting. My absolute favorite part of medicine is helping patients solve problems and embrace new perspectives on health and wellness. I aim to get to the root cause of problems, so they can be removed or altered. I take a holistic approach to patient care, involving the mind, body, soul, and pharmacotherapy.
I graduated from Midwestern University – Glendale Campus with a Masters in Health Professions Education. I’d say I have a passion for teaching and I have taught residents, medical students, and PA students at Midwestern, A.T. and Idaho State. During my time at Idaho State I had the opportunity to play a leading role in a 3-year transformation of the I.S.U. Family Medicine Residency program into a Therapeutic Lifestyle Center program that incorporates mental health, physical activity, nutrition, pharmacotherapy, and integrative medicine. I was able to present my research findings of this process at the American College of Sports Medicine Conference in Denver, CO.
