I grew up in Wyoming and Idaho. Growing up in smaller towns and near farms, I have a great appreciation for communities and nature. I attended medical school in Israel, a rich learning experience that has served me well. My family moved to the Salem, Oregon area from Madison, Wisconsin in 2010 and I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2013.
I work in the primary care department as a Family Medicine physician and thoroughly enjoy providing care for entire families all in one office. I believe in Kaiser Permanente's commitment to teamwork. I am reminded everyday that we have a talented group of nurses and support staff to provide comprehensive and excellent care to our members.
I live on a few acres with chickens, goats and cows and the opportunity to grow a lot of what we eat. Fixing up the farm also provides a variety of physical activities to share with my husband and daughter. As we settle in, we are also realizing the importance of our community connections. We support local agriculture and enjoying the new restaurants and businesses that are popping up around downtown Salem.
