Originally from Northern California, I have had the opportunity to live in many parts of the country, including Rhode Island and Michigan. I have always been drawn to medicine and specifically to women's health. I moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2013, and I am thrilled to be working in the Kaiser Permanente Obstetrics and Gynecology Department in Vancouver, Washington!
About my practice
I try to make my office environment collegial and friendly. I believe that physicians provide the best medical care when we collaborate with patients. I offer recommendations based on medical evidence, and hope to engage all my patients in treatment discussions before finalizing plans. I enjoy the variety of Obstetrics and Gynecology and have particular interests in birth control, teenagers and young adults, minimally-invasive surgery, and alternatives to surgical intervention.
How I thrive
I love to try new and different foods, savor the great local microbrews here in Portland, Oregon, hike and explore the outdoors, catch up with friends and loved ones, and get lost in a good book with a great cup of coffee.
