Further, I am currently working as a Patient Access Specialist and Physical Therapy Aide at the clinic.

Mary worked in Eugene for 21 years, before moving to the mid-west to marry and raise two daughters. She returned to Eugene in 2015 and calls it home. It is the perfect mix of mountains and beach, small town and city for her. She loves to hike, run, cook and spend as much time as possible with friends and family.

Joyce Canizares

Administrative Support

I graduated from Linfield College with a bachelor’s in Business Information Systems many moons ago, and am quite content with my rudimentary knowledge of computers :-).


When I’m not performing support staff duties at the clinic, I work for PeaceHealth full time as an Analytic Reporting Developer. Whew!

I absolutely love to spend time with my boys when I can, especially when they are home from college. In the in-between time, I’m digging all that Oregon offers, especially gardening, walking, and hiking, regardless of weather. When it’s a bit chilly outside, I really love to get creative in the kitchen and watch the news.
