As a native Oregonian, I'm thrilled to work with women and families in this region. I grew up in rural southern Oregon and received my undergraduate degree in women's studies from the University of Oregon and a medical degree from Oregon Health & Science University. I completed my residency at Pennsylvania Hospital, which is both the nation's first hospital as well as Philadelphia's busiest obstetric hospital! I now look forward to raising my daughter here in the Pacific Northwest, near family.
About my practice
I'm proud to work with Kaiser Permanente to provide services to women in every stage of life — gynecologic exams, pregnancy, birth control, or gynecologic surgery. I love that my field allows me to connect with patients long-term to explore these issues in an office setting, as well as to provide more acute hospital care and support. I want my patients to feel both medically informed and comfortable with making their own health decisions.
How I thrive
I enjoy spending time with family and friends outside of work and frequently host casual dinners and get-togethers in my home. I also maintain a veggie garden and enjoy quilting, watercolor, and neighborhood walks with my daughter.
