About me

I was born and raised in Portland, OR. I received my B.A. in Biochemistry and Spanish from Bowdoin College and then my M.D. from OHSU. I completed my Internal Medicine Internship at the University of Colorado, then my Ophthalmology Residency at the OHSU Casey Eye Institute, and finally my Glaucoma Fellowship at UC Davis.

I treat both adult and pediatric glaucoma. My research interests include non-invasive ophthalmic imaging techniques for glaucoma and improvements in pediatric glaucoma treatment. I am also involved in initiatives to optimize community eye health outreach.

During my free time I enjoy playing soccer, basketball, skiing and spending time in the outdoors around Portland.

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.
