Coming from a large California city, I enjoy working with our diverse student population, hearing where their education is taking them, and being able to have health teaching moments during our clinical interactions. My husband and I moved our family to Oregon in 1990. We have a 28 acre family farm where we raise sheep, hay, and a variety of fruits. I enjoy gardening, camping, having my kids, grandkids and parents close and Sunday family dinners. I miss the beaches of California but the lack of traffic and quite of the farm is great.
