Born in Kirkland, Washington, to a first-generation immigrant mother from Taiwan and an American father, Dr. Hamilton grew up in Kirkland and Ketchikan, Alaska. She received her dual degree Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry and Bachelor of Arts in Music from University of Washington. While in undergrad, she worked as a certified nursing assistant as well as a summer camps teacher at Pacific Science Center. She also volunteered in various community service settings and in a lab exploring the progression of glioblastoma multiforme. While studying at Western University of Health Sciences to train in Osteopathic medicine, she balanced her time by living in a housing cooperative that prioritized sustainability. She was involved in school groups that contributed to community outreach, discussed health policy, as well as travelled to Haiti. She completed her residency at Central Washington Family Medicine Residency with service in Ellensburg and Yakima communities where she served as chief resident. Returning to the west side of the Cascade Mountains, she worked as a full-scope family physician and adjunct faculty before transitioning to teaching full-time in 2018. She has interests in all aspects of family medicine including inpatient medicine, obstetrics, Osteopathic medicine, family medicine residency training, as well as how to best serve our patients to improve health.
