I grew up bandaging and making medicine for my dolls rather than dressing them up. I have always loved teaching and science, both of which fit perfectly into my career as a general internal medicine doctor.
About my practice
I love working with patients to enable them to maximize control of their treatment. As a middle-aged woman, I understand some of the challenges we face growing older and am comfortable treating chronic conditions in men and women of all age groups. I chose Kaiser Permanente because of its excellent standards of practice and the amazing collegial relationships among the doctors and staff.
How I thrive
I am married to a minister and we have three terrific children. I mentor several young women locally and find great joy in being out in Oregon's beauty.
