Dr. Peterson is originally from Western Montana. She completed medical school at the University of Washington and residency at the University of Hawaii. She enjoys her time with patients, but when she is out of the office she can be found fishing rivers of Oregon, hiking the parks and forests, exploring with her dogs, reading, painting or scuba diving. Having lived in many areas, she settled in the Willamette Valley for enjoyment of the full seasons and the family friendly environment of Salem. She has a multitude of hobbies and is curious by nature, which carries over from her professional interests. She recertifies with the America Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology yearly and is driven to provide the best care possible for each patient.
