I grew up in Spokane, Washington. I graduated from high school planning to become a high school science teacher but along the way I became interested in medicine. I ended up becoming a medical assistant. I worked as an MA for Group Health from 2003 until 2008 when I left to attend PA school. I graduated from MEDEX (Spokane Class 12) in 2010. I worked in cardiology for a little over a year and then moved to urgent care. I currently work for Providence Urgent Care in Spokane and love the variety that I get to see in an urgent care setting.
I have always been interested in teaching and soon after graduating returned to help tutor, proctor and even give a few lectures. I was able to join MEDEX as part-time faculty in 2014, which I am very excited about.
