I especially enjoy working in the general surgery department because the variety of medical and surgical conditions that we treat. My job takes me into a variety of settings as well: hospital, clinic and operating room. Working in Red Wing I am part of a community based practice. One of my favorite parts of my job is educating patients and helping them understand their medical condition and options for treatment. With that knowledge they can make the best informed decision about their care. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, swimming, spending time with my family and friends, and writing.
