Philosophy of Care:
My approach to patient care is to build an open and trusting relationship. I hope to foster this by creating a safe space within each patient-doctor relationship. My goal is that each patient feels heard and included in decisions.
My specific interests include women’s health, mental health, palliative care, community outreach, and care for minority groups and the underserved.
What drew you to CWFMR and Ellensburg:
I was initially drawn to CWFMR for its strong rural training, and I was won over by the sense of community and support I felt. I was looking for a program with a strong sense of community involvement and focus on community enrichment.
In my free time I enjoy anything outdoors (hiking, bouldering, kayaking). I love anything creative and can spend hours making music. My philosophy in life is that I’ll try (almost) anything at least once!
