I was raised in Bozeman, Montana, and have a nurse practitioner degree in family practice from Montana State University, in Bozeman. My first clinical practice was in Butte, Montana, but I have been here in Portland — and at Kaiser Permanente — for more than a dozen years. I am currently practicing urgent care at the Beaverton Clinic.
My father is a physician, as was his father, and my great-grandfather. Practicing medicine and helping others is deeply ingrained. I love interacting with patients and staff who teach me so much every day. I hope to bring a little comfort to everyone's visit at Kaiser Permanente.
I have a sassy young daughter to whom I hope to pass on the importance of caring for others. I like to eat pizza, read magazines, and rake leaves.
