"I approach care with both my patients and their families in mind, and I value the relationships that I'm able to develop with them. I strive to provide care that is optimized for each patient's unique needs and top-of-the-line from an orthopedic standpoint. I'm happy to work with families to overcome barriers to care, and open to trying alternative medicine strategies to complement care at a patient's request. I'm fortunate at Gillette to work every day with such a talented, dedicated group of care providers. I utilize our multidisciplinary setting to ensure that care for all patients is as comprehensive as possible."

My research has focused primarily on hip dysplasia, including genetic and familial association of hip dysplasia. I am also in charge of the Gillette Clubfoot clinic, with data collection on all clubfoot patients in hopes of evaluating long-term outcomes in our patients.

I enjoy trail running, travel, surfing, reading and spending time with my family and three dogs. I also enjoy spending time in the mountains.
