About Me

I grew up in rural North Dakota and spent countless hours at the nursing home where my family has worked for generations. As I watched people age, I saw the consequences of memory loss and impaired physical function on the vitality and emotional well-being of the patients and their loved ones. Now, I work to understand how we age in the hopes that someday we can use that knowledge to help reduce the burden of age-related diseases and dysfunctions.
