Pediatrics - Primary Care
Prior to earning my medical degree at Wright State University in Ohio in 1986, I received a bachelor of science in chemical engineering at Virginia Tech. I completed my residency at the Children’s Hospital Medical Center of Akron in Ohio. I am from Ohio originally and moved to Oregon to join my husband after we got married. I love the proximity to both the ocean and Mt Hood here in Portland but miss the snowy winters in Ohio!
I see children and teens for routine well care and a variety of pediatric problems. It is a privilege to be involved with my patients and families as they grow and to help them make informed decisions about their health. I follow the immunization schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and believe it is safe for all children.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, outdoor activities (hiking, bicycling and skiing), reading, gardening, trying new recipes and sewing. I am also involved at church with bell choir and helping with our monthly meal for the Transition Center.
