At a young age, I realized I wanted to work in the medical field, caring for people. In junior high here in the Portland area, I started volunteering in the emergency department at Providence Milwaukie Hospital and continued that through high school. I went to Portland State University for my undergraduate education and then to Oregon Health & Science University for medical school. At OHSU, my passion for caring for people in emergencies was only strengthened, and I pursed further training at Maricopa Emergency Medicine Residency in Phoenix, Arizona. After graduation, I continued to work in Phoenix for several years before returning to Oregon. I am thrilled now to be working and helping people in the community in which I grew up.
About my practice
I am privileged to work with an exceptional group of emergency physicians at Kaiser Permanente. We work under the direction of a leadership team that is dedicated to finding ways to provide the best, most efficient care for our members.
How I thrive
I maintain my well-being by getting outdoors as much as possible. I like to hike, bike, snowshoe, and kayak, and bring my two dogs with me whenever possible.
