Biographical Info:
Twin Cities native, graduated from Maple Grove Senior High. Attended University of Northwestern – St. Paul, graduating with a bachelors in biochemistry. I then attended Midwestern University in Glendale, AZ for PA school. I worked in intensive care for Mayo Clinic Rochester for three years prior to moving back to the Twin Cities. I have worked the last two years full-time in rural Emergency Departments with a total of four years of rural hospital experience. My wife and I have been married 10 years and have four children with a fifth due in January. We attend St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in New Brighton.
I am running to help create a Minnesota that is supportive and encouraging to family formation, growth, and flourishing. My campaign slogan is “Strong families, Strong Minnesota”. As the building block of society, family life must be healthy in order to make our state healthy. I will fight for the rights of parents to obtain a good education for their children, for a healthy economy that creates jobs and stable work environments, and for the laws of our state to be enforced so our streets will be safe for kids to walk, bike, and play outside!
