I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, as the sixth of seven children of the two hardest workers I've ever known. I consider it a privilege to serve others through health care and enjoy the intellectual rigor required for excellent patient care. I married my high school sweetheart and we have two young boys that keep us quite busy.
I am an Internal Medicine doctor. I previously worked as a Hospitalist in the Seattle, Washington area, but have recently transitioned to Internal Medicine Primary Care. I enjoy the art and science of medicine and believe in evidence-based medicine. It is my goal to help my patients and their families better understand their health and thrive beyond the clinic encounter.
I strive to live an active and healthy lifestyle which includes indulging every now and then. I stay balanced and optimistic with meditation and prayer. I aim to learn something new every day. In my down time, I enjoy reading, good food and spending time with family and friends.
