Pediatrics - Primary Care
I was born in Portland and have lived here most of my life. I received my undergraduate degree in psychology from Reed College, then worked as a research assistant at the Oregon Regional Primate Research Center for a little over a year. After that, I moved to Philadelphia, but decided to return to the Pacific Northwest to go to medical school, and I’ve been here ever since. I completed my medical degree and my pediatrics residency at Oregon Health & Science University.
I chose a general pediatrics practice rather than a pediatric specialty because I enjoy the variety that it presents. I like getting to know my families and watching my patients as they grow and develop. It’s a privilege to take care of kids from their newborn visits in the hospital to their pre-college physicals. My patients make me laugh every day, which is good for my health!
In my free time, I like spending time outdoors, hiking and biking. When I’m stuck inside on rainy days, I like to read, cook and knit.
I follow the immunization schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and believe it is safe for all children.
