After many years of training and moving around the United States, I am excited to be in the Pacific Northwest. I grew up in New England, went to undergraduate nursing school in Arizona, and completed my Master's in Nursing Anesthesia at Boston College. I spent my first year as a CRNA in Richmond, Virginia, at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center, where my spouse was completing his medical residency in anesthesia. We chose to come to Oregon because of our active lifestyles, great appreciation of the outdoors, and passion for travel and new adventures. We also love sharing experiences with our puppy, Otto, a Bernese Mountain Dog.
As an anesthesia provider, I believe that safety is of the utmost importance in my practice. I enjoy building a plan that is specific to each individual member and trying to optimize each member's experience with anesthesia. I am excited to continue learning and growing in my role with Northwest Permanente, where quality, safety, and member satisfaction are so highly prioritized.
I enjoy experiencing the world around me, most frequently through outdoor activities—soccer, hiking, camping, and taking my dog swimming. I also love to travel and experience new cultures, try new foods, and meet new people.
