Amanda’s desire to practice medicine came after the injury of her father.  He suffered a traumatic brain injury after a fall while working.  Amanda and her family spent countless hours in the hospital and rehabilitation units while her father recovered.  She saw first hand the impact the medical professionals had on her father and family.  She became interested in medicine at that time and has remained passionate about providing care that will positively impact the lives of her patients.  


Amanda started practicing in Fargo, ND after graduating from PA school.  She then moved to Minnesota in 2014 to be closer to family.  She is excited to be in her hometown and give back to the community.  Amanda enjoys spending time at home with her husband, Cody, and their four children, Lyla, Cameron, Brackstan, and Lydia.  She also enjoys cooking, baking, and attending Wabasso High School events. She provides care to all ages and enjoys all aspects of family medicine and acute care.
