I grew up in upstate New York. After attending college in Vermont and New York, I went to physician assistant school in Chicago, Illinois. I worked my way across the country with a job in Colorado and then moved out to Portland, Oregon, to be closer to my brother and his family. I fell in love with Portland and am happy to call it my home now.
I enjoy taking care of all my patients. In particular I have a passion for helping our breast cancer patients through the process of their reconstruction. We have a tremendously wonderful and tight team in our department, and I believe that shines through as we care for each individual.
I enjoy spending time with my husband and our children. We play games and laugh as much as possible. We try to eat a healthy meal together every night and like to try out new recipes. We love to have friends and family over for dinner, take walks in our neighborhood and do impromptu "dance parties" in our kitchen. We bike to work. This is how my family thrives.
