Where I practice
I was born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica. At age 14, I moved to the United States. I completed high school in South Florida, in Pembroke Pines. Shortly thereafter, I attended the University of Florida and obtained a bachelor's degree in materials science and engineering. I have always been fascinated with the resilience of the human body, and I enjoy connecting with different people, so I decided to pursue a career in medicine.
After attending medical school at Florida State University and then spending three winters in Minnesota at the Mayo Clinic, I navigated again to Florida to complete my general cardiology and advance cardiac imaging fellowship at the University of Florida. Cardiology is a very exciting, evidence-based and diverse aspect of medicine with many options for minimally invasive and life-saving interventions.
I became interested in Kaiser Permanente due to the great reviews I encountered from doctors and members alike with regards to the high-quality of care provided. I am genuinely happy to be a part of the Kaiser Permanente team. If you are searching for a compassionate, dedicated and honest cardiologist, I am here for you.
About my practice
My interests in cardiology include general cardiology and cardiac imaging (echocardiography, cardiac CT, nuclear cardiology, cardiac MRI). I am also very interested in cardiovascular disease in women, as well as preventive health care.
How I thrive
I find that having a positive attitude helps me the most each day. I am fortunate to have a strong support system in my spouse, parents, siblings and friends. I also believe in nurturing my spirit, as well as maintaining a healthy diet and exercising multiple times each week.
