Professional Experience

I completed my B.S in Biochemistry/ Chemistry at UC San Diego. Afterwards, I worked in clinical research before deciding to pursue a master’s degree in physician assistant studies at OHSU School of Medicine. I’ve worked at CHAOS now since 2012.

Personal Life

I was happily raised in Los Angeles, but have happily made a home in Oregon. I enjoy being outside and around nature. Yoga is my preferred form of exercise. I spend quite a bit of time thinking about my next meal. My favorite book is East of Eden. When I’m not working, I’m trying to make the most of my time with my loved ones, especially my two young girls. My favorite quote is “If you’re not busy being born, you’re busy dying.” – Bob Dylan.
