I have enjoyed working at Kaiser Permanente for over ten years now. Being a hospital based internist is a good fit for me. I grew up here in Vancouver, WA and think this is a great place to raise a family. I enjoy being outdoors, especially hiking, skiing, fishing and backpacking.
I work with a team of hospitalists, which is a relatively new term. Hospitalists are internists that specialize in the care of patients who require hospitalization.
I thrive by enjoying my work, getting lots of exercise with my family and dog, and keeping a "glass half-full" attitude.
