About me

I was born in a small town in the Upper Great Plains and raised on the family cattle ranch. I relocated to the Pacific Northwest for professional school, completed residency training here, and joined Kaiser Permanente shortly thereafter, but I still go back to help out on the ranch as often as I can. I find that the profession of optometry provides the best balance of my skills, interests, and talents. I am a believer in integrated medicine and appreciate that at Kaiser Permanente I can use my training to contribute to the overall health of members--an approach that can be hard to find.

About my practice

The way I see it, I am here to use my training and experience to inform and guide you in your understanding of eye and visual health. Then together we can make good, evidence-based decisions about your care. I do my best to apply this approach, whether we are working on glasses or contacts; managing eye disease such as macular degeneration, cataracts, or glaucoma; or, for those who are visually impaired, practicing with low vision. I work hard to make sure that your outcome is the best it can be.

How I thrive

In clinic, I enjoy trying to improve how we operate to make optometry work better for our members, the organization, and the community. In my free time, I enjoy all types of outdoor activities--fly fishing (and tying flies), hiking, mountain biking, mountaineering, camping, and kayaking to name a few. I also enjoy meeting up with friends for dinner and spending time with my family. It's about finding balance.
