What inspired you to choose medicine? I come from a small community and our physicians were the go-to people in our town. I wanted to be one of those people. If you have good medical care within your community it makes you stronger.
Why did you choose your specialty? I wanted to do surgery, and when I did my rotation in vascular surgery I loved it. You have the potential to make a great impact on patients.
What is your philosophy of care? I see and treat the whole patient. Establishing a relationship with the patient is very important to me.
What do you like about Yakima? I like the outdoor activities. We have all the seasons here and there are still lots of things to do.
What do you like to do outside of work? Hiking and spending time with family; we enjoy cooking and I hope to do that more. I have a 2-year-old daughter and she keeps us busy.
