I completed my MSN/FNP at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA and am board certified in advanced diabetes management. I received my nursing degree and master of public health from the University of Hawaii and have a bachelors of science in nutrition from the University of Utah. I moved to the Northwest from Hawaii in 2002, and have no regrets.
The treatment of diabetes has come a long way in the last century, but while the cure is still elusive there are more tools and medications than ever before. I enjoy working with patients to tailor make a regimen that will work for them and achieve the best outcomes. I feel we offer a special environment for patients, because the diabetes center here at The Portland Clinic has a dedicated staff to support the complexity of diabetes regimens as well as provide the emotional support for patients diagnosed with this disease. I am a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP-BC), Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE), and board certified in Advanced Diabetes Management (BC-ADM).
I thrive by hiking in the hills and mountain trails of the beautiful NW, rain or shine. I volunteer for the ADA, JDFR and AADE including walks and biking events.
