It is a pleasure to be part of one of the most effective health-care organizations in the world. I was born in the Middle East, raised in Europe, and received medical training in various parts of the United States, including Ohio, New Mexico, and North Carolina. I have called the Pacific Northwest home for the last 14 years. I find practicing medicine to be a great honor, and I learn much from my patients and colleagues.
I am a hospitalist and have worked in clinic and post-acute-care settings as well. As steward of my patients’ health, I strive to limit the side effects of modern medicine and foster optimization of an active life.
Disconnecting is important to a balanced life; trips to the beach, dancing, and exposure to esthetics of any kind — art and music — help me thrive. I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter, traveling and playing outside as much as possible.
