On Patients: I enjoy establishing a caring relationship with patients. I believe in treating the whole person, which encompasses their social connections, interests, belief systems and stresses. People are not just physical bodies.
On Oncology: At Olympic Medical Cancer Center, we work as a team. Each member of the team is special. Our goal is individualized and compassionate care.
About Me: My mother was Japanese. In Japanese culture, there is a special reverence for the elderly. I went into medicine because I enjoyed interacting with the geriatric population. Older adults have much to teach us, and I have subsequently learned a lot as well.
Personal Information: I have three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and a mixed breed German Shepherd. They are my “pack.” I’m married, and recently moved to the Olympic Peninsula. I enjoy yoga, Pilates, knitting and reading.
