Biography

Alexandra (Sasha) Swartzman was born and raised in Chicago, IL.  She moved to the East Coast for  college,  where  she  attended  Vassar  College  in  Poughkeepsie,  NY  and  majored  in  both  Biology and Women’s Studies.  The day after graduation, Sasha packed her bags and moved to San  Francisco,  where  she  lived  in  the  mission  district  and  worked  as  a  bicycle  mechanic,  teaching  bike  repair  classes  and  helping  others  fix  their  bikes.   During  this  time,  she  also worked as a clinical research assistant at UCSF on an HIV/AIDS study.  Having fallen in love with the West Coast, Sasha moved to Portland two years later to attend medical school at OHSU, where  she  obtained  an  MD/MPH.  A  devotee  of  city  living,  Sasha  is  ecstatic  to  be  staying  in  Portland for residency at OHSU, and hopefully beyond.  When not in the hospital, you might find  Sasha  sewing  her  own  scrubs,  at  a  farmer’s  market  contesting  the  difference  between  yams and sweet potatoes, riding one of her four bicycles, trying a new restaurant, weeding her garden, picking berries on Sauvie Island, browsing midcentury modern furniture on Craigslist, playing guitar, or hosting a Shabbat dinner.  She is passionate about pursuing a career in primary care, given her interest in establishing meaningful relationships with her patients over time.
