I grew up in Serbia and finished medical school at the University of Belgrade. My husband and I lived in Oregon for our first year in the United States, and we fell in love with the natural surroundings and the people here. I completed a family medicine residency in Kansas City, Missouri, and worked as a faculty physician in the same program for two years. We were happy to return to the Pacific Northwest.
I love caring for hospitalized members — building relationships with my patients and their families when they are the most vulnerable and need all the support and help they can get. I appreciate the complexity of medical decisions and the daily challenges in the hospital that make me be a better doctor and a better person. I love being part of the team and am grateful for the privilege of taking care of my patients.
I enjoy spending time outdoors with my daughter and my husband, traveling to the ocean, hiking in the woods, or just admiring the trees. I love exercising, everything that includes dancing. Cooking is another passion, developing my own recipes and getting friends and family together for fun and good homemade meals.
