My favorite part of family medicine is being able to care for all people throughout the lifespan, especially for whole families. I try to understand your health (and your health struggles) in the larger context of your life, and I try to partner with my patients to come up with an individualized plan for diagnosis, treatment and follow-up that will be right for you, rather than a one-size-fits-all declaration, while still informed by evidence-based science and national guidelines. I try to take time to listen, consider, explain, and collaborate with you, rather than just reflexively prescribing another pill. I think preventive care is also critically important at all stages of life - vaccines and birth control are truly among my most favorite things.
It's an honor and a privilege to be your doctor - I look forward to working with you to achieve your health goals and wellbeing!
I have always loved family medicine, women's health and preventive care. I attended college and medical school at the University of Washington. After completing my family medicine training in Vermont, I returned to this area to be close to my family, who still live in Edmonds where I grew up. In my free time, I love cooking (especially baking), skiing in winter and paddle boarding in summer, and spending time with my family.
