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 from over 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 two 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 and 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 Latino Module at the Sunset clinic which enabled me to work with a Spanish speaking medical assistant (MA) and a Spanish speaking nurse to offer better care to the Spanish speaking population. I see pregnant women, children of all ages, 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.
