What Residents Love About Living in Southwest Washington

“It’s extremely affordable compared to living north in Seattle but you still have close access to bigger cities. It’s very outdoor friendly with proximity to both the mountains and the coast.”
Jordan Snell, DO, class of 2020

“The outdoor opportunities are endless. I have three kids who are in great schools and we always have outdoor activities to do in the mountain or on the water.”
Benjamin May, DO, class of 2020

“The area is really great – we are huge outdoor people, camping, hiking, skiing is what brings us to life. We are so close to the mountains, the ocean and Puget sound; there is so much access to the outdoors and amazing parks and places to take kids. Our program is very family friendly and a lot of us hang outside at work. It’s also not far to get into Seattle or Portland if you want to have some time in the city. It’s a great place to jump off into so many different landscapes.”
Katherine Shield, MD, class of 2021
