She is the very proud mother of two children, Madeleine (born 4 days after her residency completion!) and Beckett. She feels that her ability to love and her capacity for patience and understanding have grown exponentially since becoming a mother. She also knows that these qualities help her to be even more kind and compassionate with her patients. While she is quick to admit that she had never lived in a small town area before, she is equally quick to share how much she loves Coquille. From the dunes, to the beaches, to the coastal towns, to the farms — there is no comparison to the surpassing beauty of the Oregon coast.
