Bio

Dr. Rushing practices pediatrics and urgent care at NorthShore Medical Group and is an emergency medicine physician at Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital.  She values a comprehensive approach to healthcare in which physical and mental health are considered an ongoing journey that begins in childhood, not isolated to periodic doctor’s visits.  Dr. Rushing’s own personal experience has shown her just how much health is impacted by the relationships we form with each other and with the world around us, so she advocates for healthcare that’s better integrated into our daily lives—where we learn and work, the foods we eat, the activities we participate in, and the communities we build.

Dr. Rushing came to the Pacific Northwest for her residency training programs at Oregon Health & Science University and, alongside her partner Chris, has called White Salmon home since 2013. They have a small farm and are raising three small humans.

Her favorite activities include projects on the farm, restoring antique light fixtures, adult gymnastics (yes, it’s a thing), figure skating, and running.  Dr. Rushing is a certified yoga teacher and is currently completing an Ayurvedic Health Advisor training program, a holistic and preventative approach to medicine.
