Board Certified in Pulmonary Medicine, Internal Medicine, Critical Care Medicine
During my fellowship in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the University of Washington, I had the privilege of caring for the region?s sickest patients, including those with advanced lung diseases, lung transplant, organ failure, trauma and neurologic injuries. I cared for numerous patients with complex lung disease in my clinic at Harborview Medical Center, and worked as part of a multi-disciplinary team to evaluate and manage lung nodules at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance
I believe that a Doctor's role in healthcare is to advocate for their patients. I hope to empower my patients by providing them with the skills and knowledge to live their best life. I want my patients to be well informed, and to receive care that is in line with their beliefs and wishes.
I am originally from Los Angeles, but have lived all across the US. After finishing both college and medical school in California, I decided to leave the sun and warm weather for Boston where I worked at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. I stayed on as faculty there, and was a research associate at the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Science and Technology working on prediction of long-term outcomes of critical illness.
I moved back to the West Coast for my fellowship so I could be closer to friends and family, and am very thankful to be back! I love finding new restaurants, traveling, snowboarding and playing with my dog, Leo, and my cat, Milo.
