Family Medicine

An osteopathic doctor (DO) is a fully licensed physician trained in a comprehensive approach to treating patients. Rather than treating specific symptoms or illnesses, they look at the underlying causes of disease and the overall picture of a patient’s health to help them achieve and maintain a healthy life. 

My father, a retired internal medicine physician, had a huge influence on my decision to practice medicine. Originally studying physical therapy, I ultimately decided osteopathic family medicine would allow me to help patients in the way I wanted to practice.

I attended medical school at Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, Missouri, followed by an internship and residency in family medicine at Botsford General Hospital in Farmington Hills, Michigan. After completing residency in 2003, I joined the United States Air Force and remained on active duty until 2008. I was deployed to Afghanistan in 2007 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. I joined Rapid City Medical Center’s Family Medicine Department in 2010.

In my free time, I enjoy biking, skiing, hiking, gardening and spending time with my children.
