Title: Family Medicine Resident Physician
Overview: I was drawn to family medicine due to the rewarding long-term relationships that can be cultivated with patients. This continuity of care allows for a true partnership between physician and patient. I enjoy working with people to help them stay healthy in all stages of their lives, through a focus on preventive health and overall wellness. It is important to me to focus on each patient as an individual and to treat the entire person, rather than just their disease.
Professional Summary: I have a special interest in pediatrics, preventive medicine, prenatal care and women’s health. I enjoy caring for the entire family.
Personal Summary: I am from Northern New Mexico and attended the University of New Mexico for college and medical school. For residency, my husband and I wanted a change of scenery. His family is from Montana, so we hoped to move to a smaller town in the beautiful inland Northwest. The full-spectrum training at Kootenai Health in Coeur d’Alene was the perfect fit! We love all of the outdoor activities in the area and particularly enjoy hiking, swimming, backpacking, snowboarding, camping and rafting- especially when we can bring along our two dogs.
