I am a home grown Portlander. Both my mother and grandfather worked for Kaiser Permanente, and returning to my roots has been personally and professionally satisfying. I received my midwifery training and graduate education at Yale in New Haven, Connecticut, but always knew that my heart’s work was in Oregon.
Pregnancy and birth are huge events in a woman’s life, and I feel privileged to work in a system that supports the midwifery model of care. The quality of care that Kaiser Permanente delivers is exceptional, consistently based on sound evidence, and tailored to each individual family.
Trips to local farmers markets are a regular treat for my family and I love gardening with my kids. It’s all about balance between my personal and professional lives.
