Amy graduated from the University of Washington with a Master of Clinical Health Services from the UW MEDEX Northwest Physician Assistant program, after receiving a Bachelor of Science in Public Health and Global Health. During her time as an undergrad at UW, she competed as a D1 student-athlete in both Cross-Country and Track and Field.
Following graduation, she worked for 6 years as a surgical assistant in oral and maxillofacial surgery. She eagerly took the opportunity to travel to Cambodia to volunteer and assist in oral surgery provided to children in underserved communities. Since then, she’s always known that working with kids and improving their health and access to care was her passion.
In her work today, Amy strives to integrate social determinants of health to achieve a more preventative and holistic approach to medicine. She feels so lucky to have the opportunity to bring her passion for preventative care into her practice in allergy, asthma, and immunology. Here at Columbia Allergy, she has so much fun connecting with her patients, and treating the source of their health issues, rather than placing a Band-Aid on symptoms. In her free time, she loves traveling the world with her husband and still loves to run for fun, but she has replaced the track with the mountain trails, and never goes far without her favorite running buddy, Yeti the husky, always by her side.
