I grew up in Tacoma, WA surrounded by evergreen trees, the water and the Cascade mountain range. I left the rainy Pacific Northwest to attend college in Southern California.

I grew up in Tacoma, WA surrounded by evergreen trees, the water and the Cascade mountain range. I left the rainy Pacific Northwest to attend college in Southern California. After majoring in Bioemedical Engineering, I had the good fortune of getting a job as an engineer for a lab at a children's hospital in Los Angeles. Our patients interested me a lot more than my computer code, so after two years in that awesome city, I headed back home to Washington for medical school. While in medical school, I had the opportunity to train in the urban medical centers of Seattle as well as in small hospitals in rural Alaska and Wyoming. Everywhere I went, my patients taught me about the importance of community and the role physicians can play in shaping individual and population health. After that, a future in primary care was an easy choice for me. I wanted to keep exploring the rest of the country and to work in new communities, so I decided to try out the East Coast for residency. I love traveling and outdoorsy things like biking, hiking, camping and learning to fly fish. I love to cook, to eat and to play all sports (especially basketball and golf). My husband and I just got a puppy, and we are having a blast exploring the Triangle.
