I specialized in family medicine and did my training at Swedish in Seattle. After graduating I started my practice at Group Health Cooperative which has since become Kaiser Permanente (KP). I was part of a team that helped KP launch two new clinics in the Seattle Area in 2019 and 2020. We launched KP’s Ballard Medical Center, where I currently practice and see patients as a family medicine physician, in January 2020, and the pandemic hit six weeks later. We were able to, almost overnight, take our care to 100% virtual and then, with proper personal protective equipment and distancing, invite patients back into the office setting for in-person care. The pandemic has deeply impacted so many people in our community. We have seen increases in job loss, social isolation, food and financial insecurity. We have seen the challenges families are facing while parents try to work from home while helping to coordinate their children’s online schooling (go teachers!!!). We have seen spikes in substance use, anxiety, depression and suicide. While our current reality remains challenging, I am filled with hope as we continue to mobilize our pandemic response and work towards getting our communities vaccinated. My husband, John Davison, has been amazing holding down the home front. We have two kids; Oliver is 11 and in 6th grade, and Isabel is 9 and in 4th grade.
