About me

Practice Goal

James enjoys teaching and caring for the diverse patient populations at UWMC. He believes all patients should be treated with the utmost respect and emphasizes patient autonomy. He strives to provide the highest and safest level of care to his patients and wants them all to feel as if they are family.


James graduated with his bachelor’s degree in nursing from Oregon Health & Science University in 2012 and worked there in the CVICU. James attained his master’s degree in anesthesia from the Kaiser Permanente School of Anesthesia/California State University, Fullerton in 2017. He then went on to practice in Memphis, TN before relocating back to the Pacific Northwest.

In his free time, James can be found cycling, hiking, and exploring everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer with his family.
