I was born in Cleveland, Ohio and lived in five different states before leaving home to attend Seattle University - and I’ve been here ever since! After graduating with a BSN degree from Seattle University, I worked as an RN for over 10 years in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I then attended University of Washington, where I completed my Doctor of Nursing Practice and obtained board certification as a family nurse practitioner.
My favorite part of being a nurse practitioner is the opportunity to build long-term relationships with my patients. I have the honor of witnessing my patients grow and change and helping them navigate different health challenges throughout their lives. I have a special interest in low barrier and inclusive care with experience in hepatitis C treatment and gender-affirming care.
When not working, I am usually outdoors with my family or friends enjoying the amazing recreation that this area has to offer. My favorite activities include climbing mountains, skiing, jogging, surfing, reading books, and working in my garden.
