Tessa McLaughlin, MD

Tessa was born and raised in British Columbia, Canada where she grew up doing all things outdoors--camping, cross country skiing and hiking in the Canadian Rockies. She completed her BSc in Biology at the University of Victoria where she worked in research as well as with a non-profit organization doing marine conservation and public education. After finishing her B.Sc. she moved to a small northern community in Canada where she realized her calling in the connections built in family medicine. During her years in medical school she worked on the executive board for Women in Medicine organizing educational programs for adolescent mothers, and tutored students through the medical honor society. Her clinical years took her all over the USA, but her favorite clinical experience was with the family medicine community she found at Providence St. Peter. She is thrilled to be staying in the rainy Pacific Northwest for residency where her goal is to provide inclusive and non-judgmental primary care. Her clinical interests include women’s health, patient advocacy, and lifestyle medicine. When she is not in the clinic, Dr. McLaughlin hopes to be in the mountains, running, painting, or making Friday night pizza with her husband.
