Kaiser Permanente provider
My gender: Female
My office is accepting new patients. Please call 1-855-208-7221.
I consider myself Latin Asian American. My family is of Chinese descent from Peru so I speak fluent Spanish instead of Chinese. I was born and raised in California, as the youngest of 6 children, in a Spanish speaking household. This rich background has given me a great appreciation of other cultures and has helped me become a "people person" . After living in both northern and southern California, I decided to attend medical school in New York. When I moved to Colorado for my residency I fell in love with the mountains, and met my husband. We now have 2 young daughters and enjoy sharing them with nearby relatives, especially grandmas.
As a woman, I am particularly drawn towards women's health, but I really enjoy all aspects of family medicine including pediatrics, minor trauma, and chronic disease management, such as diabetes and hypertension. I look forward to really getting to know my patients over the years. I hope that my patients consider me a friend and partner in their healthcare.
Having grown up in a large congested city with little opportunity to play outside, I really appreciate the outdoors. I now love adventure trips, where I can sea kayak, climb mountains, mountain bike and hike. I hope to instill that love of the outdoors in my children. We plan to have lots of family trips camping, hiking, and evetually biking and skiing (my husband says snowboarding). As a working mom with small children I constantly trying to find the perfect balance of work, family, and "me" time. To that end, I will run my first half marathon in January of 2012. Wish me luck!
