I am originally from Ohio and grew up in a household of chemical engineers, but I decided early on that I wanted to pursue medicine. I matriculated into a combined undergraduate and medical school program at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Along the way, I received top honors in biology and international studies, while also spending time studying abroad. After medical school, I trained in anesthesiology at Stanford University and am delighted now to be in the Pacific Northwest, a place where I've wanted to live since childhood.
About my practice
I am devoted to providing the best care possible for my patients and their families and to do so with a smile in a friendly, respectful, and approachable manner. I take pride in alleviating stress and anxiety before surgery through careful listening and consideration of each patient’s specific concerns. During residency, I actively sought out the most complex cases so that I would be prepared to deliver the safest anesthetics possible, no matter the circumstances. I value the many resources available to me as a physician at Kaiser Permanente; it makes it that much easier for me to provide no-compromise, quality care for all of my patients and their loved ones.
How I thrive
I have always advocated a balance between work and personal life, though I am so glad that I enjoy my practice as much as I do. When not at work, I love spending time exploring the Pacific Northwest and all that it has to offer. I enjoy anything about coffee, hiking, skiing, and playing tennis and table tennis, as well as spending ample time with friends and loved ones and being on the lookout for new culinary delights. I am always trying out new hobbies and thrive when I am expanding both my personal and professional interests.
