I grew up in the Southeastern United States and completed medical training in Virginia. My wife, two sons, and I moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2012. We enjoy all things outdoors - hiking, biking, snow skiing, camping, and are diehard Portland Trailblazers fans. I kept a private practice for five years prior to joining Kaiser Permanente and can say without doubt that I prefer our safe, efficient way of practicing medicine. My partners are the smartest, most dedicated, friendliest, and skilled doctors with whom I have ever had the opportunity to work. I love being part of the Kaiser Permanente family.
About my practice
I am especially interested in high-risk obstetrics and managing the complex medical issues involved in some pregnancies. Labor and Delivery is my favorite place to be! I look forward to the challenges, excitement, and rewards that a busy day in Labor and Delivery always brings! I also enjoy practicing gynecology and dealing with emergent issues that come to the Emergency Room.
How I thrive
I do my best to stay physically, mentally, and spiritually sound. I am an avid bike rider and love to lift weights. My family and I stay fit by hiking, camping, and snow skiing. We enjoy family nature walks with our boxer dog, Shatzi.
