I was born in Germany, raised in Canada, and educated on the East Coast of the United States, but for more than 6 years Portland has been my home. My journey to become a physician had many stops along the way, including careers in consulting and global health. My job is very intense, but there is nothing as satisfying as being able to provide support to members and their families during some of life's more stressful moments.
In the emergency department we see problems ranging from ankle sprains to heart attacks. No matter the issue, my goal is always to provide the best care possible to my patients.
I spend time away from the hospital with my amazing husband and 3 incredible boys. I enjoy volunteering in my sons’ schools, cheering them on at sporting events, and being active outdoors.
