I am originally from the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan and lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico for 17 years. I am happy to have traded the hot, windy desert for the cool, green Northwest. I went in to medicine after studying Traditional Chinese Medicine in hopes of combining the two. My family and I are very excited to have relocated to Longview/Kelso, Washington where my husband can finally go sailing.
About my practice
I love being a pediatrician and feel very lucky to have such a rewarding and fulfilling job. I enjoy all aspects of general pediatrics, but I especially like preventive medicine. One of the most rewarding aspects of pediatrics for me is watching my patients grow and develop through the stages of childhood into young adulthood.
How I thrive
I thrive by spending time with my husband and young son. You can find us hiking, taking long walks, going to concerts and sailing. I love African Dance and have danced in several dance troupes in New Mexico. I am looking forward to having a big garden and seeing what will grow after having to coax our garden along in New Mexico.
