I am a native of upstate New York. I went to undergraduate and medical school at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. I then went on to Tufts Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts for residency. I have been living in the Northwest since 2008 and love the natural beauty of this region, particularly the Oregon coast.
I value the long-term relationship we are able to build in primary care. I believe that we work better as a team and want patients to be involved in the decisions regarding their medical care. I have a special interest in managing chronic medical conditions such as diabetes and hypertension. I believe preventative care is a key component to patient care.
I enjoy travelling, which luckily, my husband and daughter enjoy as well. I also enjoy hiking and spending time with family and friends.
