Dr. Dauer grew up on the East Coast after having been born and raised in Romania until the age of 6. As a young adult, she could usually be spotted chasing around a soccer ball or singing in choir. Besides her love for sports and music, Dr. Dauer caught a passion for international travel and medical mission trips at a young age and has since served across Central and South America, Asia, Africa, and The Middle East. In-between her travels, she squeezed in some time to obtain her medical degree from Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine in Blacksburg, Virginia. She then completed the In His Image Family Medicine Residency Program in Tulsa, Oklahoma before moving out to Roseburg, where she was excited to find a fun, like-minded group of people practicing full-spectrum Family Medicine.
Her practice philosophy embraces whole person care, addressing the physical, mental, social, and spiritual needs of her patients. She is especially passionate about women's health, lifestyle medicine, and pediatrics, and will always do her best to win each individuals trust while educating, encouraging, and guiding them towards better health and wholeness.
Outside of medicine Dr. Dauer and her husband enjoy playing hide-and-seek with their toddler, cooking international food, adventuring in the outdoors, and hosting game nights and small groups.
