I am a Wisconsin native who attended the University of Wisconsin in Madison for both college and medical school. I then completed my residency training in anatomic and clinical pathology in Denver, Colorado before finishing my forensic pathology fellowship in Miami, Florida. After having worked at the Utah Office of the Medical Examiner in Salt Lake City, I am thrilled to be back home working as a board-certified forensic pathologist at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health!
