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: 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.
