Board certified Dermatology
Practicing medicine has always been a natural fit for me. It combines caring for others, complex work, and a sense of purpose with providers and patients working together. Joining Kaiser Permanente is an exciting opportunity to collaborate with an amazing group of colleagues in an organization that prioritizes patient-centered care and encourages professional growth. It's my privilege to provide thorough and high-quality care to patients and their families, while developing trust through genuine concern, listening, thoughtful strategy development, and excellent communication. My career has brought me tremendous joy. I am fortunate to do the work I love. My specific medical interests include skin cancer evaluation and treatment.
I was born in Akron, Ohio. I came to Seattle, Washington, for the first time for a research fellowship at the University of Washington School of Medicine. This wonderful experience eventually brought my children, husband, and extended family to the region as well. My husband and I met during my college orientation. We attended medical school together, and we are parents to 2 wonderful children. We also have a Uromastyx lizard, many fish, and a Bernedoodle.
My most cherished moments involve experiencing the world through the eyes of my children. I treasure traveling as a family to experience new cultures. I enjoy trail running and the peacefulness of running outdoors with friends. Setting goals to participate in marathon relay trail races is both challenging and fun. I also enjoy international cuisine and historical fiction. Finding the time to exercise daily is critical to my well-being.
