Personal Profile


I have been serving patients and their families as part of the healthcare team at AALFA Family Clinic since the fall of 2004.  My specialty is Family Medicine.  As a P.A., I take thorough histories, perform physical exams, interpret lab test results, prescribe treatments and educate my patients.  I collaborate closely with my supervising physician and refer to specialists as needed to provide the best care to my patients. I find it rewarding to work with woman who struggle with infertility, PMS, irregular menstrual cycles, repetitive miscarriage and polycysitc ovarian disease.  I also provide care in the areas of well-child checks, diabetes care and simple office procedures.

My husband, Mark, and I with our three children live in St. Paul.  We are active participants in our parish and a lay Catholic community in West St. Paul.  For fun, we enjoy spending time with family and friends, going on walks, hiking, camping and gardening.

Personal Profile


I was in private OB/GYN practice in Burlington, Iowa for 22 years. In 2003, my wife and I moved to Minnesota to be nearer to 3 of our 4 children and 10 of our now 14 grandchildren. I joined AALFA in December, 2010 and now practice OB/GYN here. I work at the St. John's and St. Joseph's hospitals for inpatient obstetric and gynecologic care. I provide a full range of OB/GYN care including high risk obstetrics, infertility, laparoscopy, vaginal surgery and soon, tubal ligation reversals. I also provide all manner of outpatient gynecology. Obstetrics and gynecology is my calling from God and a profession I love.

I cherish the life-affirming focus of AALFA and am glad to be included with the doctors at AALFA.
