I have had the privilege of enjoying living in a number of places including: Southern California; Nebraska; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Houston, Texas; Sweden (on a two year mission for my church); and Guadalajara, Mexico - I lived there when I was a child while my father completed medical school, I wish I had learned more Spanish while we were there! Of all the places that I have lived, however, I absolutely love the Pacific Northwest. It's the best and I never plan to leave.
About my practice
I have been practicing obstetrics and gynecology in Salem for over ten years. I was in private/solo-practice for five years, and then joined Kaiser Permanente so I would have more time to spend with my family.
How I thrive
I enjoy spending time with my family most of all. I enjoy hiking, backpacking, paintballing, walking, playing with our dogs, reading, and good movies. My wife and I have been married for almost 20 years and we have three children.
