About me

I was born and raised in San Diego, California. Growing up, my parents provided the example of hard work, integrity and respect. I worked my way through schooling and training. I navigated different interests and career fields but settled on medicine because it provides the opportunity and privilege to make an impact on someone's life through health. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of California, San Diego, where I received a Bachelor of Science in physiology and neuroscience and a Bachelor of Arts in anthropology with a concentration in archaeology. I briefly worked in salvage archaeology, primarily recovering Native American artifacts, and as a basic science researcher prior to earning my medical degree from the UCSD School of Medicine. I enjoyed serving my community and stayed at UCSD for internal medicine residency. I completed my gastroenterology fellowship training at the University of New Mexico, where I enjoyed serving both an urban and rural population, with an emphasis on caring for patients with liver disease.

About my practice

Gastroenterology provides an engaging and fulfilling mix of medicine. I perform procedures that provide a diagnosis and/or treatment. I work as part of a team, which provides ongoing learning and teaching opportunities and enriches patient care. I also build trust with patients and bridge potentially sensitive topics that may otherwise lead them to forego care. With each patient, I try to keep in mind the wisdom of philosopher Will Durant, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” I am honored to work with adults requiring evaluation of gastrointestinal diseases and I perform general gastroenterology procedures including upper endoscopy and colonoscopy.

How I thrive

I love exploring new hiking trails with my Siberian Husky. I enjoy driving and taking road trips with my family that include stopping at local points of interest. I still love reading about history and archaeology. I previously worked as a docent in several museums and enjoy visiting both art and history museums.

Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

Referrals to affiliated/contracted physicians/providers in Denver/Boulder

Affiliated/contracted physicians/providers are not part of the Colorado Permanente Medical Group (CPMG). They are physicians/providers who have a contract with the CPMG.

If your CPMG physician decides that you require covered services not available internally from CPMG, he or she will refer you to an affiliated/contracted physician/provider.

You must have a written referral to the affiliated/contracted physician/provider in order for Kaiser Permanente Colorado to cover the services. A referral is a written authorization from Kaiser Permanente for you to receive a covered service from an affiliated/contracted physician/provider.
