In 1994, I graduated from the Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine. I am board certified and residency trained in Emergency Medicine from the University of California, San Francisco at Fresno. I graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas Executive and Professional Coaching Program and am a professional certified coach through the International Coaching Federation. I completed a Healthcare Management Executive MBA from the University of Texas at Dallas and UT Southwestern Medical Center. I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Prior to my work at Mayo Clinic, I served as managing partner of a democratic physician group, chair of emergency medicine, president of an 800-physician medical staff, and CEO/founder of a managed care startup.

I live in Rochester, Minnesota with my family.
