About me

I was born and raised in Connecticut, earned my Bachelor of Science in physiology and neurobiology at the University of Connecticut, and went to the nearby Quinnipiac University for my physician assistant training. For someone who grew up in New England, it was a far-fetched dream to move to the beautiful state of Hawaii. After vacationing on Maui, however, I was determined to make this dream come true.

About my practice

From a young age, I knew I wanted to work in dermatology because I watched a family member deal with the extensive effects of skin cancer for many years. To someday help him better manage his condition, I studied pre-med in college. When I was introduced to the physician assistant role as a medic in the U.S. Air Force, however, I quickly knew that it was the career path I wanted to take. My professional interests include integrative dermatology—combining conventional treatment with alternative remedies—cosmetic dermatology, and skin cancer. I’m also passionate about finding different ways to enjoy the great outdoors, with sun protection, of course!

To stay current in the field of dermatology and maintain my physician assistant certification, I attend national medical education conferences and re-take my board exams every six years. I read professional journals, sit in on webinars, and attend monthly meetings of local dermatology organizations. Being a member of numerous professional associations, such as the Hawaii Dermatology Society, the American Academy of PAs, and the Veterans Affairs Physician Assistant Association, also keeps me informed on current topics in dermatology and medicine.

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work for Hawaii Permanente Medical Group in a temporary position. During that time, I got to know the professional, talented, and passionate providers here. I was touched by the caring and gentle nature of both the staff and patients. I saw that my own professional and personal goals matched those of the organization, and I couldn’t have been happier to be offered a regular position.

I care deeply for the well-being of other people and always try to do my very best for them. I appreciate Eastern as well as Western approaches, and use each of them as necessary. Trust between provider and patient is important in achieving better health. I believe that my patients deserve the same care that I would want for my family members.

How I thrive

HPMG encourages a healthy work-life balance. I practice yoga, meditate, take evening walks on the beach, play tennis and beach tennis, hike, stay connected with family and friends, and travel. I also like to eat different types of local cuisine. My community activities include volunteering at a soup kitchen when I visit Connecticut, participating in the Wounded Warrior Project, and providing skin cancer screenings at Kaiser Permanente medical fairs.

Accommodations for Individuals with Disabilities

Kaiser Permanente is committed to providing accessible facilities, services, and programs for all members, visitors and individuals with disabilities. In compliance with federal and state laws that prohibit discrimination based on disability, Kaiser Permanente provides:

  1. accessible exam rooms and medical equipment;
  2. free auxiliary aids and services to ensure effective communication with individuals with hearing, vision, cognitive, and/or communication-related disabilities, including qualified sign language interpreter services and informational materials in alternative formats (large print, audio tape/CDs, accessible PDFs or Microsoft Word documents, electronic texts/disks/CD-ROMS, and Braille); and
  3. access to service animals, except where the animal poses a significant health or safety risk(s) to others.

For more information about access to a specific facility or provider, or if you believe that Kaiser Permanente has failed to provide appropriate access or services or otherwise discriminated on the basis of a disability, please contact Member Services toll-free 1-800-966-5955 or TTY 711, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. or Saturday, 8 a.m. – noon. You may also contact or file a grievance with the Kaiser Permanente Civil Rights Coordinator in person, by mail, fax or email at: 711 Kapiolani Blvd, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813, civil-rights-coordinator@kp.org, or toll-free 1-800-966-5955, TTY 711.

The availability and use of the Kaiser Permanente grievance procedure does not prevent a person from filing a complaint of discrimination on the basis of disability with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Civil Rights or the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission.

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 and 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. 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.

A narrow network is defined as a tailored, tiered or high-performance network that has 80 percent or less overlap with a health plan’s broadest network offered to a member in any type of plan offered by that health plan. Kaiser Permanente does not have a narrow network with respect to its Marketplace plans. Members enrolled in Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) Marketplace plans have access to the same provider networks as members enrolled in all other KFHP plans.

Information about a practitioner is provided to us by the practitioner or is obtained as part of the credentialing process.
