  • I am a Board Certified Family Physician who graduated medical school in Stockholm, Sweden 1995 from the Karolinska Institute and then practiced in Sweden until 2000 including completing my Internship. In 2000 I moved to Michigan and completed a Family Medicine Residency Program at MSU/KCMS in Kalamazoo, MI. In Michigan I practiced at an indigent clinic between 2003-2007 and also worked urgent care occasionally. In 2007-2008 I worked for VPA and made home visits to home bound patients. The summer of 2008 I worked in private practice as a family physician. In late 2008 I worked as a family physician for the Chickasaw Nation in Oklahoma as a locums tenens physician. Since January 2009 I have worked as a Hospitalist in Monroe, LA. At this point in my career I would like to work in a non-clinical setting and preferable from home.
