Born in Seattle and raised in Wenatchee, I attended the University of Washington where I earned a degree in public health and bioethics. Following graduation, I spent time gaining experience in a variety of healthcare settings including physical therapy, wound care, health insurance navigation, hospital medicine, and wilderness emergency medicine. I decided to stay local and do my physician assistant training at MEDEX Northwest within the University of Washington School of Medicine.
I believe in patient-centered care and team-oriented delivery of healthcare. My goal is to provide every patient with efficient, high quality, compassionate care. I enjoy general practice medicine for the wide variety of patients I get to meet.
In my free time, I enjoy doing anything that involves fresh air, especially if I get to enjoy it with my wife and our young Vizsla pup. We love to bike, hike, ski, run, paddle and travel. These things are a major reason we have chosen to move to Bellingham! I am excited to stay in the Pacific Northwest and be a part of the team at Family Care Network.
