I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and spent my first year of college at the University of Connecticut on a ice hockey scholarship. I then transferred to the University of California Santa Barbara to finish my degree in Pharmacology. I then decided to become a Podiatrist after rotating through local hospitals and offices in the Santa Barbara area. I am now married with two children and have lived in the Portland area for the past 12 years. I still play ice hockey and also enjoy water skiing, snow skiing and coaching my son's sports activities.
The Podiatry department at Kaiser Permanente is committed to providing the best care for our members. We are focused on working with you to maximize the health of your feet and ankles. We use a team approach to facilitate prompt communication and access. Our staff works together to ensure that each aspect of your visit is as pleasant and productive as possible.
I enjoy coaching and mentoring young athletes to exceed in both physical and emotional development. My family stays active by volunteering in community activities, school events and fundraising to promote a healthy lifestyle. I continue to play hockey and workout during the week to try and stay healthy myself in order to be a good role model for our members.
