I have been in medicine since 2016, but I grew up going to work with my mother who was a radiology tech. As a child I looked at medical imaging as a scavenger hunt, thinking to myself “Can I find where the problem is?” As I grew up and began my study of medicine, my interest shifted to not just finding the problem, but working to solve it. My favorite part of working in medicine is talking with and listening to patients, and together coming up with a game plan to best address their concerns. I enjoy discussing conditions with patients, and providing them with education and support so that they feel empowered to manage their conditions.

I have a background in Family Medicine and Endocrinology, with a particular interest in diabetes and thyroid disorders. I have also worked in the post-acute and long care term setting, including skilled nursing, assisted living and resident care facilities. As such, I have encountered many disease states in varying levels of severity.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and step-daughter, exploring what the Portland area and PNW have to offer. We also have a cat named Stella and we hope to adopt more animals soon. I am also testing my green thumb now that we are in a more hospitable climate.
