Insurance

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.

Biography

Leah is a family nurse practitioner who works with children and adults in the metabolic genetics clinic. She chose to work in metabolic genetics because she enjoys the opportunity to care for patients throughout the lifespan with rare conditions. Prior to joining the metabolic genetics team in 2018, Leah worked with adults and children as a primary care provider for over a decade. She values the relationships she develops with patients and their families, and enjoys helping people live well and meet their health goals.

Outside of work, Leah and her her husband (a physical therapist) enjoy spending time with their two young daughters and Twilight, their corgi. She is a busy soccer/gymnastics/swimming mom who enjoys an early morning jog, a hot cup of coffee, trips to the Oregon coast and adventurous family vacations.
