Lynne Booth

I was born and raised in New England, graduating high school in Hinesburg, VT. On a subzero January day while attempting to start my partially frozen car, I decided to move somewhere warmer for college. I came to the left coast for college, attended Lewis & Clark College in Portland and obtained a degree in International Affairs and Economics. After graduation I worked for a local copier company doing data analysis and project management, but decided medicine was my real passion after taking an EMT course. I attended PSU for post-baccalaureate studies in science and worked as a medical scribe at Salem Hospital for 2 years prior to matriculating at OHSU.

I am especially interested in preventative medicine, hematology/oncology, physical diagnosis and a team oriented approach to medical care. I love the year-round green environment of Portland, trying new foods and recipes and spending time with family and friends.
