Approach to Patient Care
I see my role as a health partner and planner. Just as you may seek advice from a financial expert to help your financial situation - I hope to provide evidence based expertise to help my patients make good decisions to improve and maintain their physical and mental health. I have been working in primary care since 2008. Since I transitioned to my role at Norwest Primary Care in 2015, I have focused solely on clinical medicine, still ranging from infancy to end of life. I have a special interest in women's health and pediatrics.
I grew up in Portland and have a large extended family in the area. This city will always feel like home, though we love traveling and exploring new places! Some of my favorite experiences have been providing medical care in rural Kenya for a summer and a month in rural Guatemala during medical school. I look forward to more international trips in the future! My husband Jon is a musician and anthropologist. Together we have 3 kids (including a set of twins!). Our family loves to hike, camp and explore the Pacific Northwest together- and we do this often with our beat up 30 year old pop-up tent camper!
