Professional Overview


I am an ebullient family physician with special interests in medical education, adolescent medicine, mental health and preventive care. I earned my undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of Puget Sound and enjoy working with patients to explore and overcome mental and emotional challenges that may contribute to disease.

My medical training began while seated around the dinner table in rural northern California where, as a child, I was inspired by the joy that my parents experienced working as family practitioners. In pursuit of formal medical training I ventured from the west coast to Mayo Medical School in Rochester, Minnesota where I was “raised” in a culture of medicine that prioritizes the needs of patients. I strongly believe in and strive to integrate and propagate this philosophy of care.

After surviving four winters and meeting my husband, I happily returned to San Jose, California where I completed residency in Family Medicine at the San Jose-O’Connor Family Medicine Residency Program. During residency I participated in the O’Connor-Stanford “Leaders in Education” Residency Pathway (OSLER) where I began formal training in medical education, working with Stanford clinician educators and medical students. I will continue this training as a fellow in the Rathmann Family Foundation Medical Education Faculty Fellowship in Patient-Centered Care in 2014.

Outside of work I am usually found spending time with my husband in our dahlia and vegetable garden, hiking or cooking. I also enjoy playing soccer, swimming and traveling throughout the world.
