I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I double-majored in English and Anthropology and re-directed to medicine when I obtained my Master of Science in Physical Anthropology.
I appreciate the Obstetrics and Gynecology department and my workplace balance between surgery, the clinic, and the hospital. I consider myself very lucky to work for Kaiser Permanente.
I enjoy running, cycling, hula-hooping, kayaking, razor-clamming (I've become an excellent spotter), basic knitting, travel, our proximity to Hawaii, consuming phenomenal Northwest food and wine, and visiting with my truly lovely group of friends. I also love introducing visitors and Oregonians to our great community.
