About Reviews

No comments available. ?

I grew up in Portland as my father worked for Kaiser Permanente Northwest, so this has been a big part of my life for a long time! I knew that my father's colleagues were wonderful people and enjoyed their work, so when I decided to go to medical school I knew that I would want to be a part of it. I loved studying biology, and after graduating from college I worked in bench-top research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center before deciding to apply to medical school. I returned to Portland for my residency training in 1996 and joined Kaiser Permanente Northwest upon my graduation in 1999.

About my practice

I have worked in primary care, urgent care, and now in hospital medicine. I find hospital medicine to be very interesting and challenging work because I like interacting with patients and the entire care team. Over and over, I am impressed by how patients and their families navigate acute illness. It is a challenge that is akin to running a marathon, and I try to make it easier for them by keeping them informed about what to expect and what they can do about their illness.

How I thrive

I enjoy running and have completed two marathons and two half-marathons. I speak German almost fluently and enjoy traveling to Europe whenever I am able! I also enjoy being in a book club with other Kaiser Permanente physicians; we choose books that don't have anything to do with medicine!
