I was born in Boston and grew up in a small town in Michigan. I missed the East Coast, so I attended college and medical school back in Boston. I finished my training in physical medicine and rehabilitation in Michigan and decided to try the West Coast. My husband and I have two daughters and we are thrilled to live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I decided to become a physician early in my college years. I majored in chemistry and enjoy integrating my scientific mind with my humanistic side. Being a physician is a privilege and a joy.
The physiatry department strives to assist you by diagnosing and treating neuro-musculoskeletal conditions with the focus on helping you achieve your optimal functional level. We feel it is important to spend extra time with you during your consultation to understand your symptoms and to formulate an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for you. Education is an important part of our treatment plan to help you understand your condition.
I stay active by helping my family thrive. We love to spend time together as a family, whether it's skiing, playing tennis, attending classical music concerts, or enjoying the outdoors. We enjoy traveling, sampling a variety of cuisines, and exploring new cultures.
