I always wanted to be in medicine, to care for others, since the age of 10. My decision came after I spent more than one month in and out of the hospital caring for my mother, who was ill at the time. Fortunately, she recovered and enrolled me in one of the best schools in the area. I was born and raised in Kenya, completed my Bachelor's degree at Egerton University, Kenya. I then migrated together with my husband and 2 toddlers to Portland, OR. I worked at Oregon Health and Science University for three years prior to joining the Physician Assistant Program at Pacific University in Forest Grove. Since becoming a PA, I have worked both in Family Practice and Urology. I have experience and enjoy working with a diverse population.
I look forward to partnering with my patients to help them build healthier and happier lives. My job is to listen to my patients and provide them with the tools they need for their own personal journey; to treat "You", as a whole person.
I enjoy dancing, running and cooking in my spare time. I do take pride in helping other people, currently working on opening a small clinic in my village in Kenya.
