Hello incoming first year residents!

We welcome you to Mayo Clinic and are excited to have the opportunity to work together in the coming year. I am originally from small town northwest Iowa, Orange City. I went to the University of Iowa in Iowa City and am a Hawkeye through and through. I met my wife in marching band at Iowa and still consider myself to be a band nerd. I completed medical school in Iowa City as well, before moving a few hours north to Rochester for the sunshine and mild winters.


After my chief year, I will be staying at Mayo in the Division of Hospital Internal Medicine. My interests outside of medicine include drumming, sailing, Hawkeye athletics, and the Minnesota Twins. My dream is to one day become a private pilot. My wife and I recently welcomed our first child, Luke, to the family this past January. We also have two tabby cats, Cynthia and Mrs. Devonshire. My wife and I consider ourselves to be weird cat people.

I look forward to meeting you all at orientation!
