Biography

My nursing career began in the pediatric intensive care unit in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After seeing all the truly incredible lifesaving measures modern acute care medicine has to offer, I moved into the primary care realm with a passion for health promotion. I worked for a year on women’s health in rural Honduras. Then I completed my MSN with an FNP specialty in Chicago while working as a community health nurse. After this I moved to Seattle to complete an FNP Primary Care Residency. Since then, I have practiced in both primary care and convenient care clinics while teaching in an adjunct capacity. I served as an Advanced Practice Clinician (APC) medical director at Swedish Medical Group with a focus on primary care. In my spare time, I enjoy being outside with my family and ice cream.
