My journey at Mayo Clinic began when I was born with a rare genetic bleeding disorder called hemophilia. I love being a moderator on Connect because I have a connection to the majority of the groups I cover. I was born with a rare disease that led to severe joint damage and multiple surgeries. I am happy to have gone from patient to employee at Mayo Clinic. My personal interests include: Adaptive sled hockey, weight-lifting, guitar, golf, and spending time with my supportive wife and son.
