I grew up in Arkansas, went to college in New Jersey, and have lived in Portland for five years. My wife and daughter and I love the amazing food, music, and nature here. I’ve been drawn to the policy world over the last couple of years, having worked for an OHSU alumnus in Congress one summer and by being energized by the groundswell of the universal healthcare movement in Oregon and around the country. I’m enlivened by those who advocate for patients within and outside the exam room, and hope to continue activating myself and others toward greater health justice
