I graduated from UCLA School of Medicine and completed my Pediatrics training at New England Medical Center in Boston, MA, and my Pediatric Endocrinology training at Stanford. I have practiced Pediatric Endocrinology for many years. While my education and career opportunities have taken me and my family many places, we consider the Pacific Northwest our home. I have had the good fortune to work with many excellent Pediatric colleagues while in Portland. The most rewarding part of my job has been my interactions and relationships with wonderful members and their families.
In my Pediatric Endocrinology clinic, I care for children with hormone concerns. I work with a caring nurse and staff and together we address the concerns of the patient and family. We also work closely with each child’s pediatrician to provide comprehensive care, and to ensure that the child’s endocrine concern is compassionately and appropriately addressed.
Outside of work, I most enjoy spending time with my family, my husband and our two sons. Whether we are traveling or just relaxing, our sons provide us with a source of fun, inspiration and amazement. I enjoy walking our dog, which helps me maintain my daily exercise, and spending time with friends. Reading is a favorite past time, and quoting from one of my favorite books, The Phantom Tollbooth, Norton Juster, “so many things are possible just as long as you don’t know they’re impossible.”
