Brittany Buescher, MD, is a family medicine physician at Valley Family Medicine. She has spent nearly her entire life in the Pacific Northwest, after moving here from Austin, Texas when she was young. She received her bachelor’s degree in biology from Seattle University. It was here that she discovered her love for science and passion for volunteering in the pediatrics unit of a local hospital, solidifying her decision to pursue working in the medical field. After taking two years off to pursue clinical research, she attended medical school at University of Washington School of Medicine. She co-founded an educational outreach organization in Spokane, WA to expose under-represented students to opportunities in health-related careers. She developed a passion for teaching and mentoring, during which she realized the power of education to support healthy communities. She is excited to be in the Pacific Northwest and be a part of the Valley Family Medicine team. Outside of medicine she enjoys spending time with her husband and friends, cooking new recipes, and painting.
