Paige grew up in Somerset, Pennsylvania. She attended Yale University in Connecticut for her Bachelor of Arts degree in fine art/photography. Prior to moving to the Pacific Northwest, she worked as an organic farmer in rural New York and also taught classes in horticulture, animal husbandry and photography. Paige attended OHSU for her bachelor’s degree in nursing and master’s in nurse-midwifery and received honors for academic achievement, student leadership and commitment to caring for underserved communities both at home and internationally.
Prior to joining WHA, Paige worked in a community health center with a predominantly Latino farm-worker population. She enjoys working with English- and Spanish-speaking women to help them achieve their personal goals for health and wellness. She also appreciates being able to provide education to first-time parents, working with women to find their optimal contraception options and working with teenage patients. In her practice, Paige strives to honor the dignity of an individual's experiences and views the patient-clinician relationship as a true partnership.
When she’s not caring for women and their families, Paige enjoys baking, quilting and knitting, as well as hiking and pinball. She has previously volunteered as a phone-based peer counselor providing unconditional and judgment-free phone support for callers regarding their decisions, feelings and experiences with pregnancy, parenting, miscarriage, abortion and adoption. She and her husband have a brand new baby girl, three cats and a dog.
