I grew up in San Diego, California and spent all my childhood summers in Arlee, Montana. I love the Northwest but broke away to the Midwest for an undergraduate degree in political science at the University of Notre Dame. I have international experience in education and health care acquired, during three years of work in the Peace Corps in Uganda. My experiences in Uganda helped to fully shape my interest in medicine.
About my practice
I am an internal medicine physician. I believe in a team-based approach to health care. I particularly enjoy learning about the small details in my patients lives that impact their health.
How I thrive
I enjoy spending time with my husband and my dog. I love hiking, backpacking, road biking, and walking through the neighborhoods of Portland. I am developing skills in rose gardening, fruit tree pruning, and do-it-yourself home remodeling.
