I grew up in Washington, DC, as the oldest of six girls. I attended a French International School from kindergarten through high school. While there I enjoyed making friends with children of more than 50 different nationalities. I also enjoyed learning about biology. I went on to attend Duke University and decided that I wanted to go in to medicine. I then spent 2 years working as a research assistant in Boston, Massachusetts, at a clinic for bipolar disorder. The next step was medical school at Dartmouth. I was able to spend some time in Guatemala learning medical Spanish. My residency was at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), where I learned full spectrum family medicine. I then practiced at the North Portland Clinic with the Multnomah County Health Department prior to joining Kaiser Permanente in 2011. I have enjoyed working with Spanish-speaking patients and their families.
In 2015 I joined the Salud en Español Module at the Sunset Medical Office, which enabled me to work with a Spanish-speaking medical assistant and a Spanish-speaking nurse to offer better care to the Spanish-speaking population. I see pregnant women, children of all ages — including newborns — and adults of all ages. I greatly enjoy the variety of patients I care for, being able to do procedures, and helping people lead healthy, fulfilling lives.
I am fortunate to have a wonderful family and friends. I enjoy sports and outdoor activities, which I make sure to do on a weekly basis. I also love to travel.
