Health passion: Sports and Physical Medicine, I enjoy all areas of medicine, but I have a passion for evaluating and treating injuries. Becoming trained in musculoskeletal ultrasound has allowed me to make much better diagnosis and treatment plans for patients, particularly with overuse injuries. Evaluating and treating back pain is another area I am passionate about. I enjoy seeing the improvement in pain levels and function after performing osteopathic manipulation on patients. In the last six years I become proficient in performing many different types of diagnostic ultrasound, including musculoskeletal, abdominal, GYN, thyroid, breast and testicular.

Favorite pastime: Cross-Country Skiing, I usually participate in 2 to 3 moderate length ski races a year. I am not competitive in these races, but I thoroughly enjoy skiing 35 km through beautiful words on perfectly groomed trails.
Fun and crazy fact: I buy Hatz diesel engines online repair them and resell them to mostly Amish farmers.
