About Reviews

No comments available. ?

I am originally from the Midwest. I grew up in Wisconsin which has made me a Green Bay Packers fan through and through. From Wisconsin I changed careers and I moved to Chicago for medical school. This was one of the best decisions I have made for myself as I enjoy working with people and improving quality of life through health. My residency in internal medicine brought me to Portland, and it is where we plan to stay. My husband and I have two children, a girl and a boy.

About my practice

I am a hospice and palliative medicine physician, which means that I care for patients with a serious illness. I listen to patients and families to find out what medical care is desired, especially when there are complex decisions to be made. I enjoy getting to know people and their personal history so I can better understand where they are coming from and understand where they would like their medical care to be in the future. I also help manage symptoms people have to improve quality of life.

How I thrive

To keep myself thriving, I make time to spend with my family. We enjoy being outdoors, whether hiking, biking, or running in the rain or sun and skiing and sledding in the snow. I also enjoy yoga, which gives me time to myself, and cooking! I listen to NPR for my news updates in the morning and classical music for the rest of the drive to keep me relaxed.
