As the training history above demonstrates, I am partial to the Pacific Northwest. More specifically, though, I have had such great experiences at OHSU that I've never felt the need to leave! I am originally from Arizona, and was happy to trade the heat and sunshine for a few clouds and survivable daily temperature. Though I was a University of Arizona Wildcat, I happily betrayed my loyalty for a much better football team (hint: it's not the Beavers). My girlfriend and I love living in Oregon, enjoying the Portland restaurants, the wine country, and the fly-fishing. We're hopeful that one of these days we'll even catch a fish! When I'm not working or fishing, I'm usually hanging out with my 9-year-old daughter Gretchen. She teaches me a little bit everyday (though I'm afraid not much about fishing)...

Having spent the majority of my life on the East coast and Midwest, moving to the Pacific Northwest was a big change. But having been here for a year, we love exploring all the great places to eat! My husband is also a fellow here at OHSU and we have the benefit of completing our respective fellowships at the same time. We have a 2-year-old son who keeps us laughing every day. Although we are surrounded by Ducks and Beavers, we are a family of Wolverines! Go Blue!!
