My Care Philosophy

I knew that I wanted to work in genetics from the age of 10. When I learned that I could combine my love of science, people, and genetics into a career in medical genetics, I knew my direction. I came to this organization to learn how you can provide genetic services for a large population requiring a wide range of genetics services, including prenatal, pediatric, cancer, and adult. I work with individuals and families who have, or are at risk for, genetic conditions. I’m especially interested in newborns and children. I strive to treat all of my patients with compassion and give them the best possible care. The field of genetics has rapidly evolved, and with that, the expansion of technologies to establish a correct diagnosis and the growing realization of treatment.

About Me

I was born and raised in Ohio. After completing medical school and pediatric training in Ohio, I came to the University of Washington for training in medical genetics, and I’ve been in the Northwest since 1989. My husband and I have a large blended family with five children, five grandchildren, and nine dogs.

How I Thrive

My hobbies include various forms of exercising, including yoga and outdoor activities. I need to be outside as much as I can. Even when it’s raining, our large dogs demand that I walk them. If it snows in the mountains, we go skiing and snowshoeing. I also love to read and knit, and especially love trips with the whole extended family, where we have wonderful adventures and enjoy cooking big family dinners. For more than 10 years, I’ve traveled to Vietnam at least annually to teach medical genetics and help support the development of genetic services.
