Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.


Catherine is passionate about caring for children with special health care needs and partnering with families to promote optimal health and quality of life. She has a background in pediatric primary care and community health. Her philosophy of care is centered on the belief that every child has a right to high-quality, accessible and timely health care.
