I was born and raised in Seattle, then moved to Massachusetts to attend Mount Holyoke College, where I majored in anthropology. I moved to New Orleans for medical school at Tulane, where I fell in love with internal medicine, blues, fried seafood, and parades. I was blessed to return to the Pacific Northwest for residency at Oregon Health & Science University, and now I can't imagine living anywhere else.
I am excited to join the Kaiser Permanente hospitalist team at both Westside and Sunnyside Medical Centers. I have a special interest in underserved populations, social justice, and palliative care in addition to my passion for general internal medicine.
I enjoy biking to work, cooking, camping, gardening, salsa dancing, and live music.
