Accumethods LLC was established in 2004 as a way to provide consulting services on projects that use technology to help improve patient outcomes. Since then, I’ve developed a variety of skills that extend beyond the health sciences. Some of these reflect a growing interest in exploring the outdoors, others in a desire to work more with my hands and boats. If help is needed in any of these areas, please drop me a line.
I have held a professorial faculty position at the University of Washington since 2005 – frequently working on NIH funded research grants related to improving health outcomes. My PhD is in Health Information Systems (Oregon State University, 2004), I also hold a Masters in Public Health and am a Registered Nurse in Washington State.

With a growing interest in exploring the marine world and a desire for self-sufficiency, I attended the Skagit Valley College Marine Technology Program as a full time student from 2020-2022, in Anacortes, WA.
