“My family loves living in Juneau and experiencing the beauty here. I’m excited to join the JBJC team and deliver the best care in our region. I’m passionate about bone and joint health education and believe that the more a person understands their orthopedic issues the better decisions they can make. Personalizing care starts with understanding how your pain affects your activities. Together we can get back to what you love.
