I am committed to strengthening Minnesota's public health infrastructure. A strong public health system is key to serving local communities and addressing important issues such as infectious disease threats, environmental health issues, public health emergencies, and ensuring equitable health outcomes for all.
Three words to describe me:
social, determined, caring
The best part of my job:
working with Minnesota’s public health leaders. I enjoy every opportunity to build genuine relationships with people from every corner of the state.
Something that would surprise others about me:
I’m a podcast enthusiast. I listen to dozens of podcasts each week. I particularly enjoy podcasts that focus on wrongful convictions and true crime.
