I joined the practice in 1996 with a degree from the University of Washington. I love helping others and strive to make an excellent surgical experience for all of our patients.  I am married to my high school sweetheart, and we have two active teenagers. Away from the practice, you can find me on the soccer field cheering for my boys from the sidelines. Between volunteering for our soccer club and their high school, I try to find some time to travel. I also enjoy singing, and love my Seattle Seahawks. My new love is our black Labrador, Sterling, who was born September 25th, 2015.
