I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I am of Alaska Native descent (my grandmother is from the Tlinget tribe in Southeast Alaska), and I come from a large family of 6 girls. I believe that all this has given me an interesting perspective on healthcare and nursing. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a nurse — a mission that I pursued through an associate degree in nursing from Everett Community College in 2002 and bachelor’s and master’s degrees at UCLA, completed in 2009. My nursing career began in the pediatric intensive care unit at Mattel Children’s Hospital at UCLA. After graduating with my master’s degree, I took my first position as a pediatric nurse practitioner in the Heart Center at Seattle Children’s Hospital. After 6 years in cardiac surgery, I transitioned to the heart center’s regional program (covering the large area of Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho). With a focus on postdischarge care, I collaborate with patients, physicians, and even hospitals to provide continuity of care and bridging care back to our hospital, and I educate providers within the region. Regional medicine has become a passion of mine. In a world where medicine is as advanced as it is, I am often amazed to see how little some communities in our region have in the way of basic health needs (some have no running water). I have two daughters — a toddler and a newborn — and am married to a high school football coach. We live by Friday night lights throughout the season. I love yoga and Barre3; both keep me sane.

Surprisingly, I never realized the danger involved with football until I met my husband, a high school football coach. […]

Why I No Longer Tolerate Anti-Vaxxers

One may ask why I am all of a sudden fixated on vaccines. I have always been a pro-vaxxer. In graduate school, I once prided myself for talking a whole family into getting vaccines. And I certainly have always promoted vaccines when practicing. But I used to think that the decision to vaccinate, although important, was […]
