I am so happy to be living back in the Pacific Northwest after some time away! My previous work experience includes a year of nursing at Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital, several years as a family therapy intern at Kent Youth and Family Services, and most recently two years as a medical family therapist at Loma Linda Medical Center. Some of my professional and research interests include medical family therapy, interdisciplinary training and collaboration, gender and power dynamics in couple and family relationships, and mentorship supervision and teaching. A few of my personal interests are creative writing, camping, my dog Sadie, taking naps, and traveling.
