I was born and grew up in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. I received my medical degree from the University of Newcastle in 2000 and completed General Practice residency in Northumberland in 2005. My husband and I moved to the United States in 2005 and quickly fell in love with the Pacific Northwest. I completed Family Medicine residency at Oregon Health & Science University in 2010.
I care for newborns, great-grandparents and everyone in between. My special interests include child health, women's health, family planning, prenatal care and minor procedures. I aim to practice evidence based medicine, focus on preventive care, and develop relationships with my patients over time. I believe in working with my patients, our medical team and Kaiser Permanente's specialists to provide individual, diligent, compassionate care.
My husband and I have three young children who keep us endlessly entertained and very busy. We love to spend time as a family, running, hiking, skiing and exploring the outdoors.
