I am a highly motivated, dedicated and compassionate Physician Assistant providing primary care and acute care services to patients in Urgent and Primary care settings over the past 13 years. I am dedicated to providing quality care to each patient I encounter. My approach to patient care is to make sure each patient has felt listened to and their needs addressed in a respectful and caring manner.
I also bring an extensive background in social and mental health services. Prior to attending PA school I worked as a social service coordinator and discharge planner in a rehabilitation center and as a community case worker at Columbia River Mental Health. Both positions allowed me the opportunity to work as part of a multidisciplinary team. I also gained experience in conducting psychosocial and mental health evaluations, client and family counseling, treatment planning, community outreach and resource coordination.
My four month research community project was conducted at SW Washington Free Clinic providing analysis of the clinic\'s Medication Assistance program with a demographic profile. I presented my findings to the Free Clinic Board of Directors. I also provided clinical care twice weekly to patients at the Free Clinic during this time.
I received a National Health Services scholarship 2000-2002
