I am originally from South Dakota but now love calling Portland home. I enjoy hiking, running, and doing basically anything outside to keep my family busy; however, the rain is always a great excuse to get my next knitting project underway.
About my practice
My partners and I manage care of adults (18 and older), practicing medicine that's based on evidence and current research. This includes preventive medicine and helping to keep members up to date and informed on recommended cancer screenings, as well as management of chronic disease and other complex issues. I enjoy forming relationships with patients, individualizing care plans, and encouraging understanding of individual health.
How I thrive
I strive to maintain a balanced, healthy lifestyle and believe fully that life is what you make it. I like to stay physically active; having three dogs around provides considerable impetus to go running and hiking, but I also love yoga and cycling. I look forward to springtime for gardening and visiting farmers markets--especially because I also enjoy cooking and trying new recipes to celebrate our locally grown foods.
