My Approach to Care

"As a neuromuscular physician, I am most often treating patients with either inherited or acquired chronic medical conditions. I view myself as a member of each patient's care team -- a team that has several important voices, including the patient, family members, caregivers, other medical specialists, social workers, therapists, teachers, etc. As such, my most important skill is to listen to every member of the team so that we can work together to help optimize my patient's functional abilities and help him/her live each day to the fullest."

  • Interests & Activities

    I love to spend my free time with my husband, our son, extended family, and friends. We love to enjoy the outdoors, explore our neighborhood, spend time at the lake, and try out new restaurants. I'm also learning to knit, am constantly trying to beat my husband in cribbage (usually unsuccessfully), and would love to get back into rowing crew.
