Where I practice
Originally from Austin, Texas, I attended medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. I pursued a career in medicine because it allowed me to combine my love of problem-solving with helping people. My husband and I began moving west out of a passion for the outdoors: first to Albuquerque, New Mexico, for residency training in internal medicine, and then to Portland, to continue my career in hospital medicine and eventually addiction medicine, via the Addiction Medicine Fellowship at Oregon Health & Science University.
About my practice
During my 14-year career in hospital medicine, I saw that a significant portion of my patients struggled with addiction issues, and I developed a growing interest in this aspect of their care. My philosophy in caring for patients living with addiction is to meet them where they are and provide them with the most up-to-date information regarding medication therapy. This allows them to make an informed decision about their treatment. Patients with addictions sometimes have trouble accessing care, but during hospitalization, we may be able to help them with this issue.
How I thrive
I absolutely thrive on being outdoors and staying active. I love to run, swim, paddle board, telemark ski, and hike, and I work out regularly to stay fit for these activities. Alongside my sons, I am working toward my black belt in Tae Kwon Do. I was able to bike commute all but a handful of days over the last year and hope to continue this trend. I find that physical activity is stress-relieving for me. I spend a lot of time staying active with my sons, husband, and our dog. We ski on Mount Hood during the winter season. We love camping in the Pacific Northwest and in Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. When I am not staying busy, you can find me reading, listening to podcasts, or organizing my house.
