Kaiser Permanente medical center practitioner
My gender: Female
Yes, I'm accepting new patients.
I grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y., and went to college in Rhode Island, where I lived for 12 years. After a three-month stay in Atlanta, I found that I really liked the South because the people were so friendly and the weather was better than New England. I was fortunate to find a permanent position with Kaiser Permanente, and I made the move to Atlanta in September 1994. I currently work here as a full-time pediatrician.My husband (who also works for Kaiser Permanente) and I love our cat, Nicki, and our dog, Samson. We enjoy traveling, especially anywhere close to water.
I enjoy working in pediatrics at TownPark Medical Center because of the great team of people who work with me. Taking care of members is a team effort that involves our receptionist, advice nurses, floor nurses, lab and radiology staff and the other pediatric providers.
No matter what profession you are in, life needs balance. There is a time to work and a time to play. When I am in the office, I focus on meeting the needs of our members and meeting the needs of the staff and ancillary personnel. When I am home, I focus on meeting the needs of my husband, our families, our pets and myself. If I feel successful in my personal life then that flows over into my work life and vice versa.Planning my time off is just as important as planning my schedule at work. I really enjoy planning our next trip, and I look forward to visiting places I have never been before. Learning about a different culture, different cuisine, the history of a country and meeting new people makes my life more interesting and gives me a great appreciation for all life has to offer.
