I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and spent most of my nursing career in Phoenix, Ariz. However, I was always drawn to the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and in 2021, I finally made Portland my home.
My nursing career began in surgical oncology, where I cared for many women with gynecological cancers. Through that experience, I developed a passion for women’s preventive health, and in 2016, I joined the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix and shifted my focus to gynecology. I spent the next five and a half years there, simultaneously attending Arizona State University, where I earned a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree as a women’s health nurse practitioner.
As a nurse practitioner at The Portland Clinic, I provide evidence-based care for women throughout their reproductive and menopausal years, addressing gynecological issues from the common to the complex. My goal is to help women feel empowered about every aspect of their health, from contraceptive and family planning issues to HPV and cervical cancer prevention to the changes associated with menopause. Through education, communication and collaboration, I hope to be a partner and trusted advocate for each of my patients as we work together to meet their health needs.
Outside of work, I try to live a balanced life. When I’m not traveling to another state, country or island, you’ll probably find me out exploring the Northwest with my husband and our two dogs. I also enjoy working out, crafting the perfect latte, baking, reading, and binging on a good Netflix series at home (recommendations are always welcome!).
