Medical Director

Primary Service: Medical Staff


Born in Victoria, Canada, I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. I was fascinated with the complexity of the world around me and so graduated with a BS in biology from Santa Clara University and went on to obtain a medical degree from Georgetown University. I completed my residency in family medicine at Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Washington.  

Following service in the US military, I had the opportunity to train physicians specializing in rural and indigent care in the Salinas Valley of California. While there I was able to practice many aspects of family medicine ranging from obstetric to HIV care. I continued to train physicians at the University of California, Davis, and, after discovering Oregon moved to Eugene.  

Oregon has given my family and me the opportunity to enjoy biking, hiking, rain, rural adventures, and the beach. The university has given me the opportunity to work together with students on health issues so that health problems do not keep any one of us from reaching our goals.
