“I really enjoy being able to see when things click for my patients, and they can understand their health care better, and also understand their treatment and why we do certain tests and other procedures.”
Samantha has a passion for health as it relates to nutrition, the GI tract, and all the positive ways an impact can be made through behavioral changes and medical care.
Samantha has a background in Exercise Physiology, Sports Nutrition, and Thoracic Surgery. She enjoys helping patients understand their healthcare needs and providing a well-rounded approach to improving their care. She does this through a combination of evidence-based medical practice, as well as behavioral changes and nutrition, something that she feels many people overlook as a key factor in what keeps people feeling healthy.
Samantha loves the diversity of nature and outdoor activities Portland has to offer, as well as the innovative food scene and the variety of art and local events. Outside of work, she enjoys weight-lifting, biking, cooking, camping, as well as being active and spending time with family, friends, and her dog.
