Jake grew up in Hartland, WI and attended the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where he majored in psychology and biology with a focus in neuroscience performing research on ischemia brain injury. He took a brief “sabbatical” to pursue snowboarding in Steamboat, Colorado for a year. Following college, he moved to Washington D.C. and worked at NIH conducting traumatic brain injury research. During this time he met his wife, Arrianne, and they eventually relocated to Madison so he could attend medical school at UW. With the amazing quality of radiology training/research at UW and fantastic quality of life that Madison offers they decided to stay for residency. Outside of work, Jake enjoys climbing, road/mountain biking, cross country skiing/biathlon, snowboarding, gardening, and fly fishing in his free time.
