Personal Summary: I have lived in total of six different states. I have been in the northwest for over a decade and now consider this area my home. In my free time, you can usually find me exploring the great outdoors with my wife, daughter, and two dogs. Some of my favorite activities include hiking, biking, camping, fishing, gardening, and photography.
Professional Summary: Prior to medical school, I spent six years in the United States Army working as a Sergeant and pharmacy technician. Serving our veterans and their families taught me that helping others achieve optimal health and wellness required much more than delivering medication. These experiences taught me the importance of the human element of medicine. After completing my military service, I received my undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Washington.
Ultimately, I believe that the patient-provider relationship is the foundation of quality medical care, and I appreciate that Family medicine enables me to serve patients at every stage of their life journey. Some of my specific professional interests include organizational leadership, preventative medicine, pediatrics, and caring for the underserved. I look forward to getting to know you and providing high quality patient-centered care to families throughout the inland northwest.
