Lily is a born and raised Alaskan who is passionate about improving access to specialized endocrine care within the primary care setting.

She obtained a B.A. in political science from the University of Alaska Anchorage in 2013, but found her passion after being treated for her own endocrine-related symptoms. She attended nursing school at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY where she graduated with her B.S. in Nursing. Upon graduation, Lily returned home to Alaska and worked in bedside nursing while completing her master’s degree from Duke University School of Nursing. She is board certified as an Adult Nurse Practitioner (ages 13+), with Endocrine Specialty certificate from Duke.

She was inducted into Sigma Theta Tau honor society, and is a member of the Institute for Functional Medicine, Endocrine Society, Endocrine Nurses Society, and the Alaska Nurse Practitioner Association.

Lily’s goal is to make every patient feel understood, supported, and empowered. She believes in using an integrative approach that includes functional medicine to complement conventional practices.

In addition to primary care, she focuses on:

  • Assisting in detection and management of various endocrine disorders
  • Long-term management of thyroid disorders, diabetes, lipid disorders, obesity
  • GI disorders (IBS, SIBO, GERD)
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Wellness and sports physicals for ages 13 and up
  • Annual preventative exams
