All Kaiser Permanente Physicians and Surgeons
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients.
I was born and raised in Indiana, near Indianapolis. My family moved to Oregon in 2013, and we fell in love with the Northwest. We appreciate being close to so many beautiful outdoor places and in close proximity to all types of climates. I always wanted to be in the medical field and was a nurse for 12 amazing years. Even as life took its twists, I was able to continue my education with the encouragement and support of my family.
My experience as an RN taught me much about the importance of patient and provider interactions. I worked as a bedside nurse and as a nursing supervisor during my career. I found that my passion was in primary care, where you can learn about a wide variety of medical issues. I work with my patients to make sure they have the best plan for their care and point them in the right direction when sub-specialties are needed. I came to Kaiser Permanente because I knew that I would be supported to give the best-quality care, and I would have access to the resources to do my job well.
I am dedicated to my work, and I thrive in my work environment by going the extra mile to make sure things are completed. I rely on a good cup of coffee in the morning to get the ball rolling. I thrive in mind by having a good relationship with my family. Miles may separate us physically, but my extended family knows that my love and support is always present. I thrive in body through walking. Leisure walking is such a good way to de-stress. I have done 5K walks and runs and mini-marathons with friends and family. I think having a health tracker is important to thriving in body, mind, and spirit.
