Meet Dr. Brigman
Thank you so much for visiting our site. If you would like to come in and meet me and the clinic staff before you decide if we're the right fit for you and your child, give us a call!
And now a little about me:
I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. I attended Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, receiving degrees in Biology and English Literature. I then returned to Tucson, where I worked in a genetics lab for 2 years before attending medical school and completing my pediatric residency at the University of Arizona. After my training, I moved to Honolulu, Hawaii in 2003. While on the island of Oahu, I worked in both a clinic setting and also as a pediatric hospitalist (caring for very ill, hospitalized kids) at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children.
On a road trip with my partner Pascal in October 2009, we traveled through Oregon and simply fell in love with the countryside, the people...and the food! The rest is history. Starting in May 2010, I officially opened my practice doors in Newberg. I am fortunate to be working alongside Dr. Whittaker, a well-loved pediatrician in the community.
In March 2012, Pascal and I had a baby of our own--Sebastien. He is the love of our lives! Not surprisingly, having Sebastien has made me a better pediatrician. There's nothing like raising a child yourself to change your perspective and provide a wealth of practical knowledge.
On a personal note, my hobbies include photography, hiking, cooking, reading, watching movies, and traveling.
I am very proud of the pediatric practice we have built here in Newberg! Now nearly three years after we opened, I truly feel like a part of the community, and I so enjoy watching my little families grow.
