I began working in the field of medicinal chemistry, but switched career paths to pharmacy because I wanted to work directly with patients. While completing my pharmacy degree, I worked as an intern in a retail pharmacy doing immunizations, counseling and medication reviews. My clinical rotations focused on geriatric and ambulatory care including diabetes management and anticoagulation services. I have worked at the EvergreenHealth Anticoagulation Clinic (now named Pharmacist Provider Services) since completing my Doctor of Pharmacy degree in 2015.
I was born and raised in Oregon. Since then I have lived and worked in California, Texas, and Kansas before settling in Kirkland. When I'm not working I enjoy spending time with my husband and two kids, as well as sewing, painting, and watching science documentaries.
