After working for the CDC, I attended medical school at Vanderbilt University and pursued a Master’s of Public Health at Harvard. I completed my residency in internal medicine through the University of Washington in Boise, Idaho.
Internal medicine brings together the strong work ethic and love for learning that was ingrained in me by my rural upbringing, along with the knowledge and drive for social justice I have chosen to foster in myself. My public health background helps me provide superior clinical care, and to better understand and appreciate the social determinants of health to best advocate for my patients. Being a physician at Kaiser Permanente empowers me to advocate for the health of my patients and my community.

Early studies explored relationships between fat distribution and risk for cardiovascular disease and insulin resistance in type 1 diabetes and in non-diabetic patients with obesity and during aging. This led to nutritional intervention studies testing the effects of diets of differing macronutrient content (fat, carbohydrate, and protein) and bariatric surgery on hormonal signals that determine appetite and body weight. Recently work includes using advanced imaging techniques to understand how the brain responds to changes in diet and weight regulatory hormones and metabolic studies of pregnant women to learn more about how maternal nutrition, obesity, and diabetes affects the health of the placenta and baby.
