I grew up along the west coast. I even lived in Santiago Chile for a bit while growing up but I definitely call Oregon my home. I left to complete my undergrad and grad degrees in Environmental Engineering at Cal Poly. Prior to applying to medical school, I spent several years in Bend, OR where I met my partner, Amanda, and her Goldendoodle, Sophie. We added a mutt, Olive, to our pack before returning to Portland where I studied medicine at Oregon Health and Sciences University (OHSU).
We enjoy getting outside as much as possible by either hiking, camping, fishing, or all of the above. Alaska has always been high on our list of places to live, and this seemed like the perfect time to mix work and play. We are beyond excited to experience all the fun and beautiful things that await us in Alaska!
