I was raised in Oakland and am a fan of the Raiders and the A’s. While I've traveled and lived in over 20 countries, I've always returned to the Bay Area and found it to hold everything great about the world: good food, beauty, and a creative and diverse population.
Over my prior medical career, I worked as an EMT, mobile phlebotomist, MA, hospice volunteer, and an ER Technician and saw the myriad of ways that our healthcare system fails. I became a PA so that I could fill in the gaps in that system and treat patients as I would want to be treated. I was drawn to Pine Park Health because of the medical goal of care-based medicine, that puts the patient first, and the business goal of preventing the failings of our healthcare system.
