As a born and raised Oregonian, I graduated from Reed College and Oregon Health & Science University. As a Fulbright Scholar, I was fortunate to spent time in Heidelberg, Germany and go on to do my residency in the University of Wisconsin.

I loved studying science, health and the human body. In my career and in life, I saw myself taking care of my family and my community at all ages and stages of their life. As a patient of South Tabor Family Physicians, I admired how the practitioners enjoyed the encounters with their patients. So, after many years of mentorship with Dr. Crover, I saw that becoming Family Medicine physician was a wonderful fit.

The best advice I give my patients to living a healthy life:

  • Sleep well
  • Eat well
  • Move your body daily
  • Learn, even if it takes you out of your comfort zone

Most of all spend time with people you love and with those who bring out the best in you.

Indoors and outdoors, my passion is for building family & community — often through nerdy pursuits, like board games, bouldering, and social dancing. I love creating opportunities to learn about and connect meaningfully with others. I am also a proud mom and spouse.

In my off hours, I love to read to my beautiful daughter, cut a rug with my fabulous husband, explore new places on my bicycle, and cook for my large extended family.
