Philosophy of Care: Every child deserves equal access to high-quality, holistic care. Treating a child should involve family-centered, yet individualized care that is evidence-based and culturally sensitive.

Medical Interests: General pediatrics, obesity, asthma, young women’s health, nutrition, preventative medicine, and patient and family education.

Personal Interests/Hobbies: I’m from Yakima originally and am so glad that I am to work as a nurse practitioner in the community that I love. Outside of working I enjoy reading and gardening. I love outdoor activities, including running, hiking, camping, backpacking, snowshoeing, and downhill skiing. My chocolate lab loves to accompany me on as many of these adventures as possible.
