As a Wisconsin native, I trained and have been working in the Milwaukee area for my entire medical career.  I graduated from the University of Wisconsin and received my Doctoral Degree and training in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary, and Critical Care at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW).  I have been on faculty at MCW since 2003 and currently assist in the ongoing directorship of the sleep medicine program.  I also provide clinical care as part of the cystic fibrosis center.  Additionally, I take pride in being actively involved in teaching at the medical school and training future physicians in the residency programs.
