I received a Bachelor of Science in Health Ecology from the University of Nevada, Reno. I received a Master of Public Health and a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Touro University in Vallejo, California.

I have worked in family medicine since graduating from PA school. I love family medicine because it enables me to be a part of a patient’s health journey at so many stages of life. I provide general family practice but do have a passion for child and adolescent health, gender affirming care and chronic disease management, especially diabetes and hypertension.

It is my passionate belief that my role as a healthcare provider is to help patients achieve improved health as well as improved wellbeing. I am grateful to be a part of a community health center because I truly believe it is one of the best ways to support both individual patients and the community at large in achieving these goals.

Outside of work, I spend as much time as possible in nature and with my family. I love mountain biking, skiing, hiking, paddle boarding and kayaking.
