  • If you could meet one person, living or dead, real or fictional, and have a conversation with them, who would you meet and what would you talk about?

    I would love to meet Drake. I’ve been a fan of his music since I was a teenager and the first music concert I attended was his summer 2016 tour. I thrived even in the nosebleeds.

  • Why University of South Dakota...

    I earned my MD here and felt most comfortable starting my residency training in a place I’m familiar with among providers I’ve worked alongside before.
