What drew you to CWFMR and/or Yakima? :

I was drawn to CWFMR because of its strong OB, inpatient, and ambulatory medicine training in an unopposed community setting with faculty and staff who were incredibly welcoming from the very start.

I fell in love with the mountains here and wanted to have an escape on my days off to hike and enjoy nature.


Perfecting and sharing homebrew concoctions, growing my garden full of veggies, hops, and grapes, tending my jungle of houseplants, discovering hole-in-the wall eateries, and spoiling my very sassy, very fluffy cats Kismet and Karma.
