I was born in New Mexico and was raised here in Whatcom County. I received my BSN and soon after my MSN at Seattle Pacific University.
My first job was in Gastroenterology in Bellevue in 1998. After moving back up to Bellingham in 2001, I did some work in Family Practice and then started Mobile Medicine, a house calls practice on my bike, where I spent 5 years caring for patients in their homes and in facilities. I returned to Gastroenterology here at NWGI in 2015 and have been here since.
I love working with humans, listening, educating and creating a space for healing. I have a special interest in trauma and how our nervous system activation impacts our bodies.
I feel so grateful to live here in the Pacific Northwest and love hiking, cold water swimming, biking, snowshoeing, being a mom, and playing with my Aussiedoodle, Kiwi.
