About Reviews

No comments available. ?

I have spent most of my life as a Midwesterner but now feel fortunate to call the Pacific Northwest my home! I grew up in South Dakota, briefly escaped to the city life in Minneapolis for college, and then returned to my home state to attend medical school at the University of South Dakota. Through internal medicine training at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), I fulfilled my dream of living and practicing medicine in the Pacific Northwest and at the same time realized my passion for caring for older adults. I completed a fellowship in geriatric medicine at OHSU and am thrilled to stay in Portland as part of Kaiser Permanente's Geriatrics and Long Term Care group.

About my practice

I am a primary care physician trained in internal medicine and geriatric medicine. I was drawn to primary care for geriatric patients because it allows me to build relationships with patients and their families over time. I strive to understand my patients' health care goals so that I can best help to guide health care decisions, optimize quality of life and function, and provide advice as patients and their families plan for the future. I enjoy taking a comprehensive approach to patient care by working with social workers, nurses, pharmacists, and therapists as part of a health care team.

How I thrive

My partner and I enjoy the natural beauty of Oregon and find ourselves in the Columbia Gorge often. We have two cat "children" who are regularly spoiled! I also enjoy cooking, trying out local eateries, bicycling, and spending time in the yoga studio.
