Personal Interests
I grew up in bustling city of Tulsa, OK. I enjoyed life in the Midwest, but was eager to explore the rest of the country. After finishing undergrad in St. Louis, MO with a degree in Spanish, I moved to Washington DC where I spent a year studying the genetics of Alzheimer's disease at the National Institutes of Health. Then I went on to study medicine in Philadelphia where I chose to specialize in Family Medicine. I made my final move here to Portland for residency at Oregon Health and Sciences University. I enjoy family medicine because it allows me to get to know my patients and their families as well as treat a wide range of acute and chronic illness. I always said I would have been a teacher had I not pursued medicine, but family medicine gives me the opportunity to do both, teach and care for people. I feel strongly that diet and exercise are a fundamental part of a healthy lifestyle and enjoy working with patients towards their goal and helping to prevent chronic illness. I've found my home in the Northwest. I enjoy hiking with my dog, cooking, reading and spending time with family and friends.
