I grew up in Portland, and after graduating from Grant High School, I attended Tufts University, in Boston. At Tufts, I played soccer and double-majored in Community Health and American Studies. After college, I spent the summer as a camp counselor for children and teens with serious illnesses. This experience and my community health background solidified my interest in pediatrics, and from there, I began the long road to becoming a pediatrician. I completed my training at Oregon Health & Science University and am thrilled to be practicing with the wonderful pediatrics team here at Kaiser Permanente.
About my practice
I feel fortunate to be a general pediatrician because I truly enjoy supporting children and families through all stages of childhood and adolescence. As the mother of two, I can relate to the joys and struggles of parenthood, and I bring this perspective to my daily practice.
How I thrive
In my free time I enjoy playing soccer, baking cookies, taking weekend trips to the Oregon Coast and Central Oregon, and most of all spending time with my husband, our two children, and rescue dog.
