About Me

I’m a Washington native born in Sunnyside, worked and lived in Yakima and then moved to Spokane after having visited frequently for many years. I worked in factories for eight years, while attending the community college in Yakima and then Washington State University where I earned my Bachelor of Science in nursing. As a nurse, I worked with a number of passionate Emergency Medicine physicians whose love of medicine and their community inspired me to continue my education and change my trajectory to medicine.

My values as a Washingtonian and a healthcare provider led me to apply to the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine,” says Fielding.

This year, I am so excited to be graduating with the second class at the College of Medicine and to mark my 10 year anniversary as a nurse with a broad collective of experience to bolster my future practice in medicine. I enjoy a robust variety of activities outside of student life including an eclectic set of hobbies that encompass handcrafts of all types, house fix-it projects and testing my organizational skills to manage a lively and active household. I love spending time with my family which includes my husband and three kids, ages 14, 12 and 9, my sister and nephew who is 8. We love to garden and grow plants ranging from practical vegetables to bizarre and unusual houseplants. My newest, and favorite good weather love is riding my motorcycle and finding the curviest pathways to get to my destinations.

My medical school journey

Being a solidly invested Washingtonian has aligned especially well with the College of Medicine’s mission of raising homegrown doctors. My passion for women’s health and healthy families has also inspired many of my educational decisions including making connections as a student that will be important in my future practice. My goal is to keep all this hard work, investment, and interest in tough medical problems in a Washington community and to finish raising my family where I consider home: Spokane, Colfax, and the surrounding rural communities.

Hopes & Aspirations

My biggest future hope is to be able to become an Obstetrician/Gynecologist, or a Family Medicine practitioner, and to settle-in to the Spokane area permanently after residency. I plan to tackle care gaps for women and families, particularly substance abuse and treatment during pregnancy, with the plan to improve health and healthcare in our chosen Washington community for a very long time to come!
