Tell us a little about yourself.

I am a board-certified family practice doctor and a “jack-of-all-trades” when it comes to medicine, but I feel I’m especially good at dealing with pediatric and women’s health issues. I grew up in farm communities in North Dakota and Minnesota, attended college in Duluth, Minnesota, and graduate and medical school in South Dakota. My favorite activities when not working include singing in choirs, taking photographs, walking, swimming and decorating.

What is it that interested you in telehealth?

Working in telehealth gives me the opportunity to work from home. I like helping those who cannot get to their local primary care provider’s office in a timely manner or who have no access to a primary care physician or urgent care.

What is your specialty and what made you choose it?

I chose family medicine, because it gave me so many options for medical practice. I’ve been practicing medicine for the past 25 years in multiple settings, including urgent care, emergency medicine, occupational medicine, correctional medicine, administrative medicine and private practice.

What is one piece of advice you would like to give to Teladoc members?

Be patient with your immune system. It does a wonderful job of fighting off most infections without the need for antibiotics.

What is your favorite slogan?

Treat the child, not the fever!
