Biography: 

First Year Resident at BCNH (Team Care, Private Practice)

Education

Seattle Pacific University 2009-2013, Bachelors of Science in Physiology
Bastyr University 2013-2017, Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine

Teaching/Research Interests

I have spent my time as a teaching assistant and tutor throughout undergraduate and graduate school. I enjoy helping others learn in ways that make it both interesting and rewarding to the student. I am also invested in working in low income and underserved populations and hope to continue with this as I am working as a resident. 

Teaching/Healing Philosophy

I have seen that the greatest healing occurs when a patient has a strong relationship with a physician who is willing to listen, teach, and discuss. I feel that evidence based medicine is important in all aspects of care and this is the foundation of my shared clinical decision making with my patients.
