Summary: I believe that every person deserves quality medical care and should feel empowered to live their healthiest life.  It is an honor to be a Family Physician because I hear my patients’ stories as individuals, come to know them as part of their families and community, and care for them through both sickness and health.  I have a particular passion for caring for women as they become mothers and have completed an additional year of training in obstetrics.

Outside of work, I enjoy four seasons of outdoor recreation here in Central Oregon: hiking, biking, open water swimming, snowshoeing, skate and alpine skiing.  While indoors, I enjoy making stuffed animals and other gifts out of crochet, cuddling my awkward dog and cooking elaborate meals with my husband.
