I graduated from the MEDEX program at the University of Washington in 1998, I have been working as an orthopedic PA the entire time, with the last 20 years spent working for Cascade Orthopedics. Prior to starting at UW I spent eleven years in the United States Air Force as a medic working in the field as well as the emergency room.
I was born in East LA where I lived most of my childhood. I have three brothers and one sister. I have four grown children, two granddaughters, one on the way, one dog, and a fish named Darwin. I spend my free time with family, surfing, skiing, and occasionally kayaking.
