Academic and Clinical Positions

Resident, Family Medicine at South Waterfront


I am honored to have the privilege and responsibility of taking care of my patients through all stages of life. Building strong patient-physician relationships and promoting education form the core of my approach to patient care. I enjoy building bonds with patients, listening to their stories, and working together to identify ways to achieve better health. I believe family medicine is part of a diverse environment where we can learn and discover in collaboration with others. A family physician is also your gateway to excellent health care and an entire network of nurse educators, psychologists, social workers, subspecialists, and community resources, who work in partnership to provide coordinated and integrated patient care. Raised in Vancouver, WA, I am excited to be back home. In my free time, I enjoy singing, crossword puzzles, learning new languages, and spending time with friends and family.
