I am originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and moved to the Pacific Northwest for my residency training in Seattle, Washington, where I met my husband. We moved to Portland, Oregon in 2011. I have been passionate about medicine since I can remember and chose Family Medicine for its opportunity to work with all ages and across all systems. I joined Kaiser Permanente after spending three years as a teaching clinician for new resident physicians in Vancouver, Washington and hope to share with you my love of teaching and my drive to practice patient-centered evidence-based medicine.
As a Family Medicine physician, I care for all ages and illnesses but particularly enjoy working with children and families, including prenatal and pediatric care. I believe that all people deserve excellent care, a personal relationship with a provider, and attention to all aspects of healthcare; especially mental health, preventive medicine, and evidence-based care for chronic diseases.
I value my time with my family and in the outdoors. I am proud to be a family doctor, but I love being a mom and a wife, and work every day at being good at all three.
