About Reviews

No comments available. ?

I have practiced general pediatrics in a wide variety of settings and locations, including private practice in Boise, Idaho, a community health center in downtown Los Angeles, and at Southern California Kaiser Permanente before moving to Portland and joining Northwest Permanente. In addition to my interest in general pediatrics, I have pursued study of health care policy, specializing in national health care reform. When I am not at work, I enjoy backpacking, cycling, travel, and cooking.

About my practice

My current practice is focused on care of newborns as they transition from birth to discharge from the hospital. I am a strong advocate of family-centered care and want to help provide the best experience for families as they get to know their newborns. I seek to utilize the many valuable resources within the hospital to promote breast feeding and provide anticipatory guidance to families before they go home from the hospital.

How I thrive

My life is enriched by exercise; I am a regular yoga practitioner and find time to run and hike with my dog, bicycle, and swim. I am also a voracious reader and the stack of books next to my bedside is ever-growing. I try to travel abroad during my vacation time; recent trips have included Peru, Israel, Croatia, Colombia, and the Galapagos.
