About Reviews

No comments available. ?

I am a native Oregonian, born and raised in Portland. I became interested in medicine as a young child and eventually attended Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine. After additional internal medicine training at the University of Virginia, I returned to my roots in the Northwest. I am grateful to be near family and live in beautiful Portland. I am fortunate to be only an hour from the beach, mountains, and desert. During residency, I was interested in numerous medical specialties and decided to become a hospital-based physician. In 2004, I joined the Kaiser Hospital group, one of the oldest and largest in the country.

About my practice

I practice in the Hospital Medicine Department. My colleagues and I care for patient's medical needs if they are admitted to the hospital. We are fortunate to work as a team with wonderful nurses and ancillary services. The Hospital Medicine Department's mission is to provide excellent, compassionate, and efficient care for hospitalized patients. As hospitalists, we not only care for individual patients but strive to improve care throughout the hospital. In order to provide our members with the best care that we can, we implement best practices and coordinate quality improvement projects throughout the hospital. I acknowledge that being hospitalized can make our members vulnerable. My personal philosophies related to medical practice include always doing what is right for the patient and doing what I would want done for my own loved one. I value the patient-physician relationship and feel patients deserve to be involved in decisions regarding their health and be educated about their health.

How I thrive

Outside of the hospital, I enjoy time with family, hiking, gardening, crafts, cooking, and travel. I try to remain active and challenged in every aspect of life. I have a busy family, but we set aside time each evening (without telephone, TV, radio) for dinner together to touch base and discuss our day. I believe in giving back to the community. I have been an avid volunteer since childhood, but sometimes giving is as simple as helping someone at the grocery store. While I have worked at several free medical clinics, I also enjoy volunteering outside of medicine. I have served as a Court Appointed Special Advocate to foster children for over three years.
