Approach to Patient Care

From the beginning of my training to be a physician I had always imagined myself as a family doctor. I enjoy working with people of all ages, genders and populations and I value the strong relationship that is built between doctor and patient over time. In primary care, these relationships are not only rewarding, but they are essential to providing effective healthcare. I put a strong emphasis on prevention of acute illness through healthy living, regular recommended screenings, and daily management of chronic disease. I believe that my role is not only to prevent and treat disease, but, even more importantly, to be a resource to educate and empower people to take charge of their own health.

Personal Interests

I grew up in a small town in Alaska where I developed a love for the outdoors, the mountains and cold winter nights, which eventually brought me to settle in the Pacific Northwest. I completed my undergraduate education at Lewis and Clark College and then spent several years doing research in molecular biology before starting my medical training at Stanford University Medical School. While at Stanford I worked with a developmental pediatrician to develop and run a study looking at the benefits of myofacial manipulation (a type of deep tissue massage) for children with spastic cerebral palsy. While I am no longer involved in the research, I continue to have an interest in working with both children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities.
