Biography & Education

Biography

As a family doctor, I love most seeing families. And as a physician in a small community, I enjoy becoming friends and building community with my patients.

I was born and raised in Seattle, then discovered through my first year of medical school in Pullman, Wash., that I preferred small towns. Moving to Hood River 17 years ago with my husband and raising our boys here has been a dream come true.

Outside of medicine, I enjoy time with my family in the outdoors and gardening. We ski in the winter and windsurf in the summer!

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.
