Hometown: Federal Way, WA

Philosophy of care: Holistic approach to medicine: the mind, body, and spirit are connected and all aspects contribute to health. The body is innately capable of healing itself, and I like to work with my patients as a partnership toward bringing the body to a place of health.
Why did you choose EPFM residency: I chose EPFM because it is close to home and I wanted to join a program that would train me in the area I plan to settle and work. EPFM just felt like home to me when I was doing my clinical rotation with the program. It is an inviting place with wonderful, supportive faculty, nurses, and staff.
