Short Business Description
I am a double board-certified physician specializing in providing integrative medicine for oncology patients. In collaboration with the Allina Health Cancer Institute oncology team, I offer face-to-face or virtual visits for patients. The recent advances in targeted therapies and molecular oncology have resulted in new hope for patients and many have already shown promise in improving outcomes. There remains, though, a need to address common issues such as chronic fatigue, anxiety, sleep disorders, and fear of recurrence. This gap in supportive care is due to the lack of access to high quality integrative care, which leaves patients at risk as they make unguided decisions in the most vulnerable time of their lives.
I hope to bridge this gap by providing holistic, individualized care, and adopting healing strategies that are patient centered and evidence-based. My two year Integrative Medicine fellowship, as well as my experience as a physician who has partnered with many cancer patients for supportive wellness, has made me appreciate the impact a holistic approach on not just how patients adapt to their diagnoses and therapies, but also how hard clinical endpoints can be positively affected.

Practice philosophy: Eating is essential to life, and eating healthy and sensibly is way of life, not a quick fix. There are "sometimes foods" and there are "always foods" and we need a bit of both to be truly healthy.

Best part of working with patients: My favorite part about visiting with patients is the relationship that we get to build. I feel this relationship is crucial to being able to help patients discover what healthy eating looks like for them, as a unique individual.

Why I became a provider: I became a provider because I discovered how important good nutrition was for my own body, and I wanted to be able to help others discover the same freedom that came with eating healthy.

I am a board-certified adult and geriatric nurse practitioner specializing in functional medicine seeing patients 13 years of age and older. I have been a registered nurse for over 15 years and a nurse practitioner since 2012. I’m interested in partnering with people to help them safely navigate and use the best of what integrative and conventional medicine both have to offer. I provide help with chronic health concerns and guidance on creating wellness plans that will prevent disease, and optimize health and vitality. I'm passionate about: using food as medicine and exploring how stress, sleep, spirituality, relationships and the environment are all connected to health and what to do about it. A challenge of my career I enjoy is: deeply listening to the whole story and discovering what factors may be contributing to why someone has a disease or symptoms. Then taking a step further and guiding people through the complexity of making lifestyle changes that will work for them.

The best thing I've done for my health is: to eat more healthy fat and protein, and eliminate a food that was causing symptoms.

I became a provider to follow my passion for helping others, expand my knowledge and give back to the community.

My practice philosophy: The body and mind are intrinsically connected. True health care must take all aspects of a person into account.

I currently serve on the Board of Directors for the Minnesota Acupuncture Association.

Short Business Description
Hometown: Cambridge, Minnesota

Practice philosophy: As an integrative nutritionist, I use "a food as medicine" approach to help people achieve improved health. Whether for general health, or disease prevention or management, I can meet you where you are to work on large or small dietary and lifestyle changes and goal setting.

Best part of my work: Through my experiences with functional and integrative nutrition, I find that patients are much more engaged and excited about taking control of their health.

Why I became a provider: I became an integrative nutritionist because even though I ate healthy and exercised on a regular basis, I still didn't feel that I had great health. After doing more research and finding other like-minded health professionals, I found whole foods and specific supplementation helped me to have more energy, sleep better and have mental clarity. In addition, I have a close family member with ADHD who has been helped greatly through dietary changes, nutrition supplementation, and working with an integrative pediatrician.
