My 2.5-year-old absolutely loved *Dr. Clayton. She still talks about her and how funny she is. We did a big health insurance shuffle to get back to Kaiser so we could continue to see *Dr. Clayton.

This was an urgent visit because my 3 year old fell and hurt his arm. Dr. Clayton spent a lot of time w/us, explained everything really well, and made us feel at ease. If we were closer to Gateway I would love to have her as our primary pediatrician. (Although I love our current dr. as well.) It was a very smooth & satisfactory visit!

I thought Dr. Clayton was great. Her approach was thoughtful, and she was great at interacting with my daughter in a way that was reassuring. I also appreciated that she said she wasn't entirely sure what was going on. She gave me guidelines for watching carefully and explained what to do depending on how things progressed--I appreciated that.

I love Dr. Clayton! She is very knowledgeable and seems to genuinely care about her patients. She listens to what I have to say about my daughter and values my input. She's just the best, couldn't ask for a better pediatrician for my daughter.

She is always genuinely caring and never makes us feel rushed, always happy to discuss any topic. She was great at including [child's name] in the care options and choices where possible. For example liquid or chewable pain medicine.

Dr. Clayton was very personable and spoke to us in a way that made things easy for us to understand. You can tell she loves what she does.

I really liked that the dr didn't push the medication since it wouldn't make a difference unless his symptoms changed. She ordered the Rx in case so that it would be easy for me to obtain if needed.

I grew up in Minnesota and attended Carleton College for my undergraduate education. After college, I joined the Peace Corps in Malawi, in southeastern Africa. While living in a small village in the north of the country, I taught science at a secondary school and spent time at the local hospital, and it was there that I became certain that medicine was the path for me. Returning home, I entered medical school at Tulane University in New Orleans. My partner and I moved to Portland, where I completed my residency in pediatrics at Oregon Health & Science University. We fell in love with the city and are looking forward to many years exploring the Pacific Northwest with our children.

About my practice

I believe that the keys to a happy, healthy life lie in a nurtured and active childhood. I feel that disease prevention is one of the most important aspects of my job. I try to emphasize the importance of forming healthy mental and physical habits, even in the first weeks of a child's life. I want to help ensure that children with chronic diseases or difficult medical conditions receive the highest quality care possible, so that they can live life to their full potential. I enjoy forming a partnership with my members and their caregivers as they navigate the joys and difficulties of those first 18 years. Listening and engaging with my members gives me great satisfaction.

How I thrive

I enjoy nourishing my mind, body, and heart. I like to explore the outdoors and play music with my husband and young children. Our family loves to grow, cook, and eat fresh, delicious food. I try to be active every day by hiking, doing yoga, running after my children in the park, or walking with my border collie. I keep perspective by reading lots of books and traveling with family and friends.
