I was born and raised in Hawaii with frequent trips to visit family in Portland. I now enjoy living here with my family. My husband and I enjoy hiking, camping, and exercise and one day hope to share all these activities with our 3 young children. I developed an interest in medicine out of my own need to understand my health on a higher level.
About my practice
As a family physician, I love that I am able to care for the entire family, from newborns to their grandparents, including expectant mothers. Diagnosing and treating illnesses is just one part of being a doctor. The larger part of my job, which I enjoy the most, is educating patients on their chronic illnesses and helping them take control of their health issues.
How I thrive
Family is very important to me and spending time with my husband and children brings me the greatest joy I have experienced in life.
