About me

I was born in Hawaii and grew up on a farm in northern New York state. This upbringing instilled in me the ability to work hard, not complain, and appreciate the bounty of the earth. I obtained a bachelor’s degree in English and French, then worked as a Peace Corps volunteer in the Central African Republic, where I met my husband, a fellow volunteer and mechanical engineer. After teaching English in Japan and traveling with my husband-to-be across the country by bicycle, I decided it was time to do something meaningful with my life. I went to medical school at Oregon Health & Sciences University, followed by a rural family medicine residency in Klamath Falls, Oregon. These experiences have taught me that people are more alike than we are different. Currently, I live outside of Salem on a few acres of property with my husband, son, and daughter.

About my practice

Before joining Kaiser Permanente, I worked for six years in a rural clinic providing medical care to all comers, from babies to people at the end of life. I enjoy the variety of my practice and getting to know my patients. This is what makes family medicine fun and interesting. One role of a family physician is to help people interpret what is worrisome regarding their health and what needs the attention of a specialist. I see myself as a sounding board for all things health-related, an advocate for my patients. I find that being a physician for multiple family members enriches my ability to care for patients. Ultimately, I want each of my patients to feel heard, cared-for, and as healthy as they can be. In office, I do joint injections, contraceptive placement, and minor skin procedures. My interests include minimizing medications and helping patients make lifestyle changes to improve their health. I came to Kaiser Permanente because it is focused on providing good medical care to patients through innovative programs and research. I am happy to be a part of an organization that is making a difference in the wider world of medicine.

How I thrive

I thrive with exercise, plenty of sleep, healthy eating, and quality time with family and friends. More specifically, I enjoy reading, gardening, and swimming, and I really appreciate my daily cup of coffee. Road trips and camping are a favorite of our family in the summers. In the past, I have paddled an outrigger canoe from Molokai to Oahu, bicycled across Canada, and participated in triathlons. I thrive when I feel useful, so a day of work well done, where I leave things just a bit better than I found them, is quite satisfying. To be kind, useful, a good parent, the best physician I can be: when I am accomplishing these things, I am feeling pretty good.
