I have always lived in the Northwest, growing up in a small town in western Washington, earning a degree in biology from the University of Portland and my physician assistant training from Oregon Health & Science University. I have always had a love of science and a passion for learning.
My approach to a clinic visit focuses on listening first. I enjoy helping people understand their illness or injury and the teaching aspect of the clinic visit.
I most enjoy spending time with my family. When time allows, I can be found tending to my garden or woodworking.
