Position: Physician Assistant
Describe some of your job duties: I’ve been with the clinic since 1999 and see patients independently or in collaboration with Dr. Guse, taking histories, performing exams, ordering and reviewing tests, performing procedures, and developing treatment plans with the patients. I am also involved with surgeries. I help patients determine when surgery is necessary, do pre-operative instruction, physicals, and preparation, assist during the surgery, and participate in post-operative care in the hospital, Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC), and clinic.
Favorite thing about working at SPO? I love working with the patients and developing relationships with them over the years. It is rewarding to help them achieve their goals. I also enjoy working with our staff. We have a really great group at SPO and the ASC.

Family/Pets: My husband, Brad, and I have three beautiful daughters—Megan, Maddy and Isabelle. Brad is a tenured professor of physics. We also have a Teddy Bear named Regent.
