Medicine has always been a calling for me and I grew up with a sense of helping others. I was a typical Midwestern kid living in the farming community of Osage, Iowa, where the values of hard work, respect and giving back were instilled at an early age. I received a Bachelor of Arts from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, and my medical degree from Des Moines University, where I chose my emphasis in primary care. As a family medicine physician my broad training allows me to care for newborns to older adults and everyone in between, and I enjoy using this broad knowledge base to solve daily puzzles and adapt to an ever-changing pace. As a physician in the community I have the opportunity to be a leader in the town I serve, just as my own mentors were in my life. My wife and I have three dogs and two cats, and feel fortunate to live here. I like to hike, run, road bike, golf, ski and sing.
