I was born and raised on Long Island, New York. I have lived in Atlanta, Georgia, Haiti, Ghana, New Zealand and Portland, Oregon. I guided canoeing and climbing trips and conducted research in tropical medicine prior to attending medical school at Emory University. I moved to Portland for residency at Oregon Health & Science University.
I work in the Urgent Care Department and care for people with sudden unexpected questions or concerns. I believe in listening, communication, education and shared decision making. I love our staff - we make a great team and strive to provide excellent medical care.
I love to walk in the woods, ride my bike around town, meditate, cook and read. I love to share meals and conversation with my friends and family.
