I really enjoy being a family doctor. I like caring for pregnant women and newborns, postpartum women, growing children, adults, and older adults. All stages of life come with unique joys and challenges, and I feel privileged to help people through the health-related aspects of these different stages. I've found that for me there's no substitute for the connection that’s created by caring for the whole family, and I really enjoy the diversity of seeing newborns and older adults. I'm thrilled to be practicing in Portland, where my two young kids are smiled at in restaurants when they're being goofy, and I can make it up to the mountain to ski almost weekly in the winter.
I am a collaborator and like to work with each person to form the best possible plan for their individual health and goals. I'm thrilled to practice at Kaiser Permanente, where the mission of the organization supports my practice style, and the medicine and care is up to date and evidence-based so that every member receives the best possible care.
I enjoy outdoor activities with my family and dogs.
