I joined Bunks Medical Center in 2008, which became Bellingham Bay Family Medicine in 2011. I received my Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2005. I finished my residency in family medicine in 2008 at Providence Milwaukie Hospital in Portland, Oregon.
My interest for providing comprehensive medical care to patients of all ages is part of my "whole person" approach, with a special interest in musculoskeletal health. I feel it is important to be an advocate for patients and empower them to reach their health goals with fitness and healthy lifestyle choices as well as medical therapy.
I was born and raised in Whatcom County and returned to the area after medical school to be closer to my family. The county also allows me to enjoy my outdoor passions. You will find my husband and I, along with our two beautiful daughters, hiking and skiing at Mt. Baker or on the trails for a run.
