Dr. Enestvedt emigrated from Malaysia at a very early age to New Jersey. Her medical education brought her steadily west to Portland, Oregon after completing medical and business school in Chicago at Northwestern University. After her internal medicine residency and gastroenterology fellowship at OHSU, she completed an advanced endoscopy fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania, focusing on ERCP, endoscopic ultrasound, double balloon enteroscopy, luminal stents and esophageal and colonic endoscopic mucosal resection. She served as gastroenterology faculty at Temple University in Philadelphia prior to joining the OHSU faculty.

She is specifically interested in therapeutic endoscopic advances, clinical research aimed at improving patient care for esophageal, gastric, pancreatic and colorectal cancers, and biliary strictures in patients with a history of liver transplant.  Dr. Enestvedt also serves on committees associated with the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy aimed at improving GI fellowship training and education.  She is also passionate about teaching and encouraging careers in academic medicine for medical students, residents and fellows. She is married with two young daughters and in her free time enjoys playing tennis, travelling internationally and claims to be a crossfit enthusiast.
