I am originally from St. Louis, Missouri. I graduated from Missouri Columbia School of Medicine before relocating to Portland for my residency in Family Medicine. I am married and have three beautiful daughters.
About my practice
I work in the Family Medicine group in the Portland area. I enjoy caring for people who have a wide variety of health conditions and performing various procedures such as injections, skin biopsies, cyst removals, and toenail removals. On the other end of the spectrum, I enjoy treating common mental health issues, such as depression.
How I thrive
I gain inspiration by being part of an intimate faith community and spending time in the wilderness (nature), hiking, fishing, and camping with my family. I also enjoy intellectual stimulation from books that grapple with the relationship among science, religion, and philosophy. And an occasional vacation is refreshing as well!
