Provider Bio

From the Provider

“Newberg is such a lovely setting: usually easy paced, but with the skillset to rapidly and expertly recognize and handle changes. We are small enough to really get to know our patients, but with all the resources of WHA behind us. This allows us to offer each woman what she needs—both emotionally and physically—within a proven system. We are able to provide care for high risk pregnancies at our Northwest Perinatal Centers, and for normal birth at our out-of-hospital Midwifery Birth Center—and the whole gamut in between. Being able to help women along that pathway with the resources we have within WHA is so important to providing continuity and quality care. I’m proud to be part of a team that recognizes each woman comes from a unique situation and has unique needs.”

About the Provider

Reb was born in California and moved to The Ozarks for middle and high school. She accepted a scholarship to attend the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, where she received her bachelor’s degree in nursing. Then, with four children at home ranging from age two to nine, she worked as a labor and delivery nurse and newborn intensive care nurse for more than 10 years before returning to the University of Utah for her master’s degree in nurse-midwifery and women’s health. Upon finishing graduate school, she and her family moved to Portland for its relaxed pace, bike friendliness and commitment to the environment.

Reb seeks to make a difference in the lives of women by making sure their experience with the healthcare system on their wellness journey is empowered through access to information and education about options—regardless of where they are coming from in their lives in terms of age, experience, education or spiritual background. She believes that all aspects of a woman’s life influence the choices she makes for her wellness and the care plan should be as unique as she is. Her clinical interests include lactation support, STD prevention and screening, and improving access to care for the LGBTQ community.

When she’s not working, Reb appreciates art and enjoys travel and music. She claims that some would find her taste in music surprising, as she enjoys dub step, techno swing, deep house, and indie rock—the louder, the better! She also enjoys horseback riding and was adopted by a feral cat, Shiro, that has become an important member of the family.

    Is there anything else you would like to share about your experience with your provider?

    I did not realize that I was going to be seen at the Newburg location until I received the notification text. I usually go to the Tualatin location. I did like Dr. Rebecca though, so in the end it worked out and I will continue seeing her.

    I feel that for the issue i had come in with and the inflammation she saw on the initial exam, she was quite rough during the manual exam and caused further discomfort and pain for 2 days after the exam itself.

    Reb was so wonderful. Her bedside manner is impeccable. I was so scared and nervous for my procedure but she was so calm and understanding and walked me through everything very carefully. I appreciate her so much!

    I have worked with a number of people in your office and all of them have been kind, courteous, respectful, friendly, and understanding. I never feel rushed or judged. I rarely wait for my appointment for more than 5 minutes. Thank you for making the experience of my first pregnancy more comfortable and less scary!

    Is there anything else you would like to share about your experience with your provider?

    I did not have a bad experience, but it did feel like a verg cold experience. I understand that this is normal daily business for the provider, but as a newly expecting patient I expected to see someone that would try really hard to start building a relationship with me.

    Reb was all-around fantastic! I felt listened to, cared for, and valued as a person. I really connected with Reb and felt treated as a human not a patient chart. I left the appointment with all of my needs met and access to resources and information that could be helpful. I would 100% recommend.
