I graduated in 2000 from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine and went to Seattle, WA to complete my pediatrics residency at the University of Washingtonian 2003. I stayed for an extra year to serve as the chief resident at Seattle Children’s, teaching and thinking about what I wanted from life and career. At the end of that year, I moved to Northeastern Arizona, subsequently spending five years working for the Indian Health Service. In 2009, I moved myself to Oregon. I love my community and am enjoying my patients, helping my parents, and finding joy in the fragments of everyday life.
