"Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity."
I have worked as a family physician in clinical medicine for over 30 years - with a focus on enhancing the body's inherent ability to heal and express health.
As a Board Certified Family Physician, I offer integrative medicine consultations and hands-on osteopathic medicine to individuals of all ages.
With attention to each individual's unique experience, I work in partnership with patients to identify and address the source of their symptoms and explore ways to ease stress and enhance vitality.
As studies and research by leading medical institutions have identified new ways to assess a person’s state of health and enhance healing, I have integrated advanced training in nutrition, mindful practice, biodynamic osteopathy and integrative medicine into my work.
I am an Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor in Department of Clinical Medicine at the Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences.
I also serve as the Director of Physician Wellness for the Idaho Osteopathic Physicians Association.
I am the Founder of Rediscovering Meaning In Our Work, a consulting and educational program focused on enhancing the health and well being of physicians and medical school students. We offer workshops, conferences, presentations, individual and organizational consultations and discussion groups.
I am a Co-Founder and Facilitator for the Idaho Physician Well-Being Action Collaborative - a group of local physicians, healthcare system executives, insurance company executives and other healthcare system professionals who meet every two months to build relationships, view healthcare issues from diverse perspectives, and identify and implement specific, actionable initiatives that enable physicians to provide high quality patient care with health and vitality.
As Director of Health and Well Being for Flow Aquatics Swim School, I work closely with company executives to develop and integrate a wellness program in alignment with their organizational vision. I also offer monthly workshops and individual consultations to explore nutrition, mindful practice, yoga and other approaches to ease stress and enhance health.
I contribute as a speaker to medical conferences nationwide, exploring cutting edge ways to enhance physician health and well being and facilitating interactive discussions on the science of mindful practice and the cultivation of compassion in healthcare.
