"I particularly enjoy working with my patients and their families together. I love that in my specialty I get to follow children for a long time and maintain a doctor-patient relationship. I feel very rewarded in helping patients and their families through difficult transitions, and seeing them come out sucessful and happy.

I am from Buffalo NY, but have been in Portland since 2000. I love the outdoor optiions we have here, and exploring them with my husband, son and daughter. "
