GreenField Health, 2016-present 

My approach to medicine stems from a strong belief that care should be tailored to each individual’s needs and should address the whole person, not a constellation of symptoms.  I strive to provide meaningful visits by listening intently and collaborating with my patients.  After each encounter, I want my patients to leave with a good understanding of what’s happening related to their care and how they can support their own health.  

I attended medical school at the University of Washington in Seattle, and have practiced medicine in a variety of rural and urban settings in Alaska, Washington, Zimbabwe, and Ecuador, before settling in Portland in 2009.  

In addition to my family medicine training, I have a strong background in pediatrics and women’s health.  I also incorporate integrative medicine and mindfulness practices into care for my patients when appropriate.  

When not at work, I enjoy gardening, biking, and spending time with my family.
