I love being an internal medicine doctor. I trained in Portland at Legacy Good Samaritan and Emanuel hospitals, and I'm happy to be able to practice in this area. I love working with residents and enjoy the fact that we have academic medicine here at Kaiser Permanente. I feel that it makes us better providers. I find that teaching helps keep me up to date on advancements in medicine and keeps me excited about what I can offer.
About my practice
In my view, preventing illness is an important part of what we offer in primary care. Partnering with members and helping them move towards lifestyle changes that will ultimately improve their health is a big part of my practice.
How I thrive
I thrive by staying active. I enjoy hiking, biking, and working out at home. I also enjoy reading and quiet moments. Spending time with my boys helps me to stay centered.
