Susan joined Family Medical Group, Northeast in 2014 because it was a perfect fit - a place to partner with patients across the lifespan. Her approach starts with listening and understanding each individual's health goals and needs, and then working closely to help patients achieve their best health. She says, "hands down, my greatest privilege is helping patients through their health (and often life), trials and triumphs. It never gets old!" Susan has a "meet patients where they are" approach with a special interest in combining healthy lifestyle promotion and medical support to treat obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and depression/anxiety.
As a board certified family nurse practitioner, Susan maintains her own panel of patients and has extensive experience in all aspects of primary care. She sees pediatric, adolescent, adult and geriatric patients for wellness exams, managing chronic health conditions, as well as the treatment of acute illnesses and injuries. She also performs a variety of in-office procedures, including joint injections, nail surgeries, urgent care injury treatments and skin biopsies.
Prior to joining our practice, Susan worked at the Center for Women's Health Internal Medicine Clinic at OHSU and at Clackamas County Community Health.
Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Susan received undergraduate degrees at University of Oregon and Oregon Health and Sciences University and earned her Master’s of Nursing degree from OHSU in 2007.
When Susan is not treating patients, she likes to run, hike, cycle, read, indulge her javaphile passion with her husband and son, and the occasional Netflix binge.
