About me

In what I like to refer to as my "previous life," I was passionate about making films. After receiving my BFA from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, I worked in Hollywood for about 3 years. Although it was exciting at times, I never felt as if I was doing real work or contributing to my community in a meaningful way. After much soul-searching I left the entertainment industry and started my premedical training. I graduated from UC Davis and made my way to the Pacific Northwest for a residency in Vancouver, Washington. Instantly I felt that I had found my niche here and now plan never to leave. I spend most of my time these days wrangling my very entertaining young son. We are great adventurers and have fun exploring the world both near and far.

About my practice

I have been a practicing family physician in this area since 2001. Family medicine is a great fit for me because I enjoy caring for the "whole patient," from birth until the end of life. I especially love treating entire families. I value helping members not only during times of crisis but, more importantly, before crisis hits and then afterward. My current passion is preventive medicine. I strive to help my patients become their healthiest selves while working to understand their struggles in getting there. Although I see both male and female patients, I particularly enjoy women's health and am trained in gynecological procedures including placement of IUDs and other implantable contraceptives.

How I thrive

Taking after my parents, I have been an avid hiker for most of my life. Even though motherhood has slowed me down, I strive to teach my son to love nature by getting us into the outdoors as much as possible. Although the gym is not my favorite place, I do manage to get there a couple of times a week just to keep up my heart health. I practice yoga for more whole body and spiritual health, and our active little Boston terrier also keeps me on my toes. I make a point of keeping in close touch with family and friends, understanding that frequent human contact is key to a long and healthy life.
