I am from Saint Paul, Minn., and I went to Lawrence University for undergraduate school. I attended medical school at The Medical College of Wisconsin. I was thrilled to move to the South for residency. My favorite thing about Winston-Salem is that it’s large enough to offer “big city things” to do but it still has small-town charm – and there’s no traffic! I love trying out new restaurants with friends. I am looking forward to continuing my surgical training and exploring all the different career opportunities within general surgery.
