I am a family physician in primary care with Northern Light Mercy Hospital. I was drawn to Family Medicine by the challenge of being a diagnostician in the primary care setting, the opportunity to foster relationships with patients across their lifespans, and the importance of prevention to good health. I have always had an interest in teaching and have enjoyed hosting Tufts Maine Track students in the office for the past few years. When not working, I enjoy biking with my family, vegetable gardening, and generally being outdoors.
