Teaching & Leadership Philosophy

I embrace a "lead from the middle" philosophy and teach by example with an emphasis on the understanding of pathophysiology.

Interests and Background

I am originally from Montana and so I like to run, fly-fish, and hike. I love critical care ultrasound.

Patient Care Area & Experience

Trauma, Critical Care, and Acute Care Surgery. I have been the medical director since 2016.

Education Experience

Why are you an educator in the APP Fellowship Programs?
I am part of this program because I am a dedicated educator and want to ensure that the Critical Care APPs leave here with the skills necessary to independently care for ICU patients.

Advice for potential APP Fellowship Applicant
Critical care is a rewarding specialty but it is very tough. Be ready to work hard - you will be challenged every day.
