My Approach to Care
"I focus on interdisciplinary collaboration with all members of the cleft palate-craniofacial team to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care. During speech evaluations, I spend extra time educating families on the anatomical and physiological differences affecting speech, resonance, and feeding in people who have craniofacial differences, including cleft lip and palate."

In my spare time I enjoy traveling, exploring the Twin Cities, and spending time with my wife and daughter.
