Although I retired from full-time emergency medicine staff position, I still continue to work ~ 0.5FTE as an independent contractor for my small rural college town community hospital emergency department in southern Minnesota. I continue to be passionate about point-of-care emergency ultrasound adoption and use in small non-academic community hospital ED's, acute pain management, and rural emergency care. I continue to serve on MN ACEP chapter board of directors and a number of national activities including CEDR sub-committee chair.
I have unfortunately been sidelined by a severe ankle fracture in March, 2019 with a long protracted recovery but hope to be back on my feet soon. I am a self-confessed wine geek, Chines home cook, cross-country skier, and traveler.
