Professional Memberships:

I have a national Pediatric Nurse Practitioner license through PNCB (Pediatric Nursing Certification Board)


I began my career as a registered nurse for Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio on the orthopedic and respiratory floors. I joined Hillsboro Pediatric Clinic as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in the year 2000.

Personal Information:

I grew up in Fresno, CA, where I played alto saxophone in the marching band.  Participating in several Mexico mission trips with our youth group encouraged me to pursue a healthcare career. After graduating from UCSD, I married my college sweetheart. We have 2 sons in the Hillsboro School District.

As a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, I believe in supporting families through promotion of a healthy lifestyle, preventative care, and education. The most rewarding part of my job is interacting with my patients as they grow and change through the years.

Community Activities:

I am busy attending soccer and basketball games, as well as church and band activities with our boys. I enjoy hiking, swimming, reading science fiction, and going to the beach.
