I am Scottish by birth and moved to the USA in 1989. Before leaving Scotland, I attended university in Glasgow and worked for the National Health Service before heading out to Saudi Arabia where I met my husband Roger. Initially we lived and went to university in Arizona before moving to Alaska. Roger taught for several years and we, along with our 2 sons, lived in Kotzebue before heading to Anchorage. I worked as a pharmacist for the Indian Health Service before going to medical school through the Alaska WWAMI program followed by a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency at the University of Washington. I joined TAHG in 2012 as the only physiatrist in the group and spent my time on the Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit at Providence Alaska Medical Center. I was given the opportunity to go to Abu Dhabi in the UAE to help set up a new Rehabilitation Facility so I went there in March 2020. Unfortunately my adventure was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic and I returned to the USA later that year. Since returning, I have been doing locum work enjoying traveling and seeing other parts of the United States. However, I am looking forward to returning to TAHG and to seeing old friends as well as making new ones at the new facility in St Elias. We are also looking forward to getting back out on our boat and catching some fish in Prince William Sound and enjoying all that Alaska has to offer. I even get to work with my younger son who is a Physical Therapist at St Elias.
