I grew up in California and moved to Portland for my medical training at the Oregon Health and Science University. Over the years, I fell in love with Portland. I particularly enjoy the proximity of city life and nature – it makes weekend excursions easy and convenient! I am excited to continue my practice here in the Pacific Northwest.
I am interested in preventative care which includes screening, routine care, and managing risk factors through healthy lifestyle changes. Although lifestyle changes are particularly challenging, I believe such changes can make a difference. I am fluent in Japanese and enjoy being a patient advocate, active listener, and educator for patients, as it is at the core of maintaining a long lasting and trusting relationship. I hope to build such a practice here at The Portland Clinic.
My work-life balance centers around good food, good laughs, and good sleep. I really enjoy discovering new cuisines and plan to travel a lot for just this purpose!
