I grew up here in the Pacific Northwest in the city of Issaquah, Washington. In college, I studied Biology at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. Prior to medical school, I worked at Planned Parenthood for three years, where I found a passion for women’s health. I also spent two years as a clinical research coordinator for psychiatric drug trials.
I then moved farther down the west coast to attend medical school at Touro University in Vallejo, California. During medical school, I spent much of my time involved with Medical Students for Choice and running the finances of our Student-Run Free Clinic.
I was drawn to Family Medicine for the opportunity to build lasting relationship with patients. I enjoy caring for patients of all ages and backgrounds, and the focus on preventative medicine that Family Medicine offers. I value open communication and strive to establish a partnership with each of my patients in seeking health. My interests include women’s health, obstetrics, and pediatrics.
In my free time I can be found baking up a storm or experimenting with a new recipe, hiking with my husband, or cuddling with my quirky Pomeranian, Phoebe. I am thrilled to be a part of Valley Family Medicine and to be back in the Pacific Northwest!
