Before coming to Neighborcare, Sarah worked as a lead physician on the King County Public Health Mobile Medical Van for people living homeless. She was a rural and a critical access physician in Omak, WA and Bethel, AK.

Sarah strongly believes that her patients are experts regarding their own lives, and enjoys supporting them in healthy living. She is a "waivered" physician, which means she is trained and licensed to prescribe Suboxone, a medication used to treat opiate addiction.

Sarah grew up in Pennsylvania and moved to Seattle in 2005 for her residency training in Family Medicine at Swedish First Hill. She loves living in Seattle and enjoys running, trying to coax flowers and vegetables to grow in her yard, and spending time with her family.

Why I Work at Neighborcare:

I chose to work at Neighborcare because their core values and service commitments embody how I want to care for my patients and my community.
