I am a nurse practitioner specializing in vascular surgery and provide comprehensive, patient-centered care for adults with a wide range of conditions involving the blood vessels of the circulatory system.
Services include evaluation and treatment of peripheral arterial disease and claudication, non-healing wounds of the lower extremities, carotid artery stenosis, aneurysms and dialysis access management.
I also care for patients with venous disease including varicose veins and treatment of spider veins with sclerotherapy, venous ulcers, lower extremity edema and skin changes related to venous stasis and lymphedema, along with evaluation and management of superficial venous thrombosis and DVT.
Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner
Certified nurse practitioner since 2011, with more than 30 years of nursing experience encompassing diverse clinical experiences in vascular surgery, cardiac and critical care, neurosurgery, oncology, hospital epidemiology, quality management and nursing education.
I am committed to caring for people with acute and chronic vascular conditions and welcome the opportunity to work in collaboration with providers, clinic and hospital staff as we strive to help improve the quality of our patients' lives.
I grew up in West Seattle and have spent most of my working life caring for patients at Yakima Regional Medical Center and am now splitting my time traveling between Yakima and Kirkland and enjoying the best of both places, while embarking on a new career at EvergreenHealth. My personal interests revolve around activities that involve being outdoors such as hiking, biking and snow skiing, spending time with my husband, cooking for friends and family and playing with my grandchildren.
