About me

I grew up in a small town near Pittsburgh. Since I was a young girl, my friends and others would share their problems with me and ask me for advice. Choosing a career in family medicine resonated with who I have always been. While attending college in the Chicago area, I met my husband. Fourteen years later, we started our family. We have two energetic boys who are the focus of our family life. My time with them is very precious to me.

About my practice

The focus of my practice is in caring for adults as they move through all stages of life. Along the journey we can face many various health challenges. However, I believe wellness is a state of being, and even those who have chronic diseases can find a place of well-being. The mental state can influence the choices one makes about his or her health. I see my role as a guide, motivator and educator who assists members in making good medical decisions.

How I thrive

I maintain a vibrant spiritual life and strive to be optimistic despite the day-to-day stressors. Keeping a sense of humor is vital. During my free time, I participate in a cooking club and outreach programs with my local church.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. 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.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business.
