As a nurse practitioner specializing in women’s health care, I have spent the majority of my career working at Westover Heights Clinic in NW Portland. Westover Heights recently closed and I am pleased to now be seeing patients at Synergy Women’s Health Care. While I enjoy all aspects of my job, I especially enjoy getting to know my patients, and providing educational and counseling experiences. I have a specific interest in herpes diagnosis and treatment and have served as a sub investigator on more than 80 clinical trials. Participation in clinical trials has given me the opportunity to conduct research in many areas, including vaccine and treatment options for sexually transmitted infections. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, singing, and traveling.
