Hello

As a Marine Corps Combat Veteran, I deployed to Iraq from 2005-2006. I  was a 0331 Machine Gunner and point man on combat foot patrols. I understand the effects trauma has on someone. After I finished my service, I knew that I needed to do something that helped people. I have been in the nursing field since 2008. I loved being a nurse, but knew I needed something more. My wife is a psychologist and has been an inspiration to me. She gave me the confidence to pursue becoming a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. I trained under an unbelievably smart and compassionate Psychiatrist who specialized in sleep and trauma. I still work with him to this day and continue to learn and grow. As a psychiatric prescriber, I have a different philosophy. Less is more.  I believe medication is just one intervention to help you feel better, and the real work comes with processing your feelings and emotions. I am an authentic person. I care very deeply. In sessions with me, I provide significant psychoeducation. I believe this is essential to ensure you understand and feel comfortable with the treatment plan. When you are working with me, we are a team trying to figure out what will be best for you.  

 

Prior to becoming a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, I worked in Neuro Critical Care for seven years. During this time, I was also a Stroke/STAT Responder. I completed my graduate training at Alverno College and specialized in psychiatry, where I graduated at the top of my class. My Master's project was dedicated to decreasing stimulant abuse, utilizing referrals for diagnostic evaluations to ensure appropriate ADHD diagnosis and inappropriate stimulant prescribing. 

I was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughters. I like to go to the gym and workout. I love all Wisconsin sports teams. I also have a keen interest in fashion and love having fun.
