I grew up in Stockton, California, and went to medical school in Phoenix, Arizona. I moved to Portland for residency and a change in climate — and was immediately hooked.
About my practice
I enjoy internal medicine for the diverse range of clinical and personal stories I get to witness every day. Being a hospitalist gives me the opportunity to do this as well as help guide people through the often-daunting experience of being admitted to a hospital.
How I thrive
In my free time, I like to hike, ski, and travel. I have recently enjoyed learning to grow fruit and vegetables in my garden.
