Hometown: Manhattan, IL
Medical School: Rush Medical College
I grew up in Manhattan, Illinois. My fondest childhood memories include swimming, kayaking, and fishing at my family’s small cabin in Wisconsin. I attended St. Olaf College in Minnesota, where I studied Biology and Spanish. I was drawn to medicine because of a desire to connect meaningfully with and serve others.
After college, I returned to the Chicago area to attend Rush Medical College. I’ve always been interested in family medicine because its continuity and breadth allow me to interact with people of all ages and connect with communities. Rush’s Family Medicine Leadership Program fueled my passions for primary care and community medicine by providing incredible mentorship, service learning, and clinical opportunities. I’m also passionate about women’s health, preventive medicine, palliative care, adolescent medicine, Latinx health, and working with underserved communities.
My husband and I are thrilled to be in the beautiful Pacific Northwest! He is originally from the Seattle area and we are excited to hike and spend time with family and friends. I also enjoy baking for loved ones, cooking healthy meals, reading a good book, enjoying a cup of tea, practicing yoga, trying new restaurants, and traveling.
