Eline Cové (pronounced Lee-na Co-vay) grew up in Tacoma, Washington, where she developed an affinity for rain, mountains, and dive bars. She studied Biology and Global Health at the University of Washington and after college, she worked as a medical scribe in an Emergency Room and a Nurse Aid at a retirement home. She then moved across the mountains to Yakima to attend medical school at Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences. She was lucky enough to have some good friends from Anchorage who convinced her to come up to Alaska for her her final 2 years of medical school, and she’s been hooked ever since.
Eline chose family medicine because of the opportunity to connect meaningfully with people of all ages, educate and empower people to take ownership of their health, and navigate a wide breadth of medical knowledge and skills. Outside of medicine, she enjoys exploring new hiking trails, skiing/tumbling downhill, baking bread and other sweet treats, reading, and traveling.
