I'm originally from central Illinois, and I grew up moving around from the Midwest to Canada, to Sao Paolo, Brazil, and back to Illinois. I went to undergraduate, graduate, and medical school at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In 2015, my husband and I moved here together for my residency at Oregon Health & Science University. We fell in love with Oregon and decided to stay. In my free time I like to eat at new restaurants, explore the country on road trips, spend time with friends, and walk my Goldendoodle.
About my practice
I consider myself very lucky to be able to provide primary care to pediatric patients. I take the privilege of caring for children very seriously, and I aim to partner with and empower parents to provide the best care for their children.
How I thrive
To keep myself feeling energized, I like to make the space around me pleasant and organized. To exercise, I take long walks a couple times a week, listening to podcasts, lectures, music, or talking with my mom. I also like to scrapbook, knit, eat good food, and enjoy time with my husband.
