Practice Experience:
I am thrilled to be starting my career as an ARNP at Yakima Pediatrics. For the past two years I have worked as a pediatric primary care nurse at Yale University. 

Why do you want to work for CHCW?
Beginning with the interview process, I was immediately struck by the strong connectedness of the practice to the Yakima Community and the dedication to providing the best care to patients and families from a variety of backgrounds and income levels. I was particularly impressed by the incredibly kind and welcoming staff at YP.

Medical Interests:
Adolescent and reproductive health, toxic stress and early childhood intervention, rheumatology/autoimmune diseases of childhood.

I aspire to..
“To learn from and collaborate with the wonderful team at Yakima Pediatrics in the pursuit of providing the most comprehensive, culturally sensitive, and inclusive care. I look forward to learning about the lived experiences of my patients and families and about the Yakima Valley region.”
Personal Interests/Hobbies:
I love spending time outside and so I am extremely excited to be relocating to the Pacific Northwest. I enjoy playing soccer, backpacking, biking, and skiing. I also love to read and take care of my house plants and two kitties.
