I have been an internist for nearly 20 years. I grew up in New England and went to Cornell for both undergraduate and medical school. I then completed my residency in Seattle.


During my training, I traveled to Africa, where I worked at a remote hospital and participated in a flying doctor service. After residency, I continued to work with the underserved by joining a rural community health clinic, where I provided primary care for migrant farmworkers. I then transitioned to hospital-based medicine for 13 years, with the last nine years spent in Portland at Mercy Hospital.


I enjoy spending my spare time with my daughter — or you may catch me playing hockey, skiing, cycling or traveling!


I am very excited to return to primary care at InterMed, where I look forward to getting to know my patients and having the privilege of taking care of them throughout their stages of life.
