Tell me a little bit about yourself
I am a native of West Virginia. I have lived in Washington since 1996. I have served high needs populations my entire career: first my residency in an urban setting in Beaver Falls, then both urban and rural settings in Tennessee, then a rural setting in Avella, PA as part of the Washington Hospital residency faculty, then in a different FQHC, and now with Centerville Clinics.
What’s something interesting about you?
I am of mixed ethnicity, my father was from Korea/Japan. I am semi-fluent in Spanish, having studied in college and spent a month in the Amazon jungle of Ecuador on a medical mission during residency. I reside with two of my children and our dog, my oldest is an adult. My favorite aspect of family practice is treating families!
