I am a proud graduate of the University of Washington School of Medicine and residency training program where I was elected and served as Chief Resident. I have been practicing 18 years and love my job. My special interests are in women's health, pediatrics, mental health and holistic medicine. I enjoy teaching, and focus on treating the body, mind and spirit in a partnership with my patients.After years of practicing in hospital-owned clinics, I left the model of corporate medicine five years ago and opened my private practice. 600 of my patients came with me, and my practice has more than doubled since that time. I am now able to take the time to build meaningful relationships with my patients and provide comprehensive, personal care that meets my standards. I have found my niche, and my style of practice works for my patients, and for myself as well. I am passionate about my profession and love going to work every day.
