I grew up in the Bay Area. After watching medical professionals care for my aging grandparents, I decided that a career in health care was for me. I attended undergraduate nursing school at the University of Portland and later completed a graduate degree in anesthesia at Gonzaga University, in Spokane, Washington. While attending schools in the Pacific Northwest, I fell in love with the area, and now I’m happy to call Portland home. I live here with my wonderful husband and 2 children.
Anesthesia is an amazing field—I get to take away members' pain and anxiety. I meet with my members pre-procedure, listen to their goals, and manage their care from the operating room to the post-anesthesia care unit. As a nurse anesthetist, I provide services for a wide variety of cases including obstetrics and outpatient and inpatient procedures.
I enjoy spending time with family and friends, listening to music, reading books, traveling, walking, and biking.
