I lived in Northern California for many years while completing medical school and residency at University of California, Davis. I then worked at the VA hospital in Sacramento as the assistant chief of dermatology before deciding to pursue a fellowship in Mohs surgery. That fellowship brought me to Oregon Health & Science University, and I could not be happier now to be working and living in Portland. I feel fortunate every day to have a job that I love doing and that gives me the opportunity to spend time with patients and co-workers.
I perform Mohs surgery and have a high-risk dermatology clinic for people with an increased risk for skin cancer.
Traveling is probably my favorite activity! I love that it allows me to spend time with family and friends, experiencing new things.
