About me

I was born in California but grew up mostly in Montana. My parents are wonderful human beings who’ve always been supportive and encouraging. My education took me all over the country, first to Montana State University for degrees in psychology and cell biology and then to the University of Washington for medical school. For my intership and residency in emergency medicine, I traveled to the University of Arizona in Tucson. For my fellowship in emergency medical services, I trained with the New York City Fire Department-North Shore-Lennox Hill. I’m now board certified in emergency medicine and board-eligible for the Emergency Medical Services subspecialty certification.

I’d been interested in working for Kaiser Permanente for several years when I learned from a friend that there was an opening in Hawaii. The islands and people here are so beautiful, and I didn’t hesitate to begin this new chapter of my life.

About my practice

The fast pace of emergency medicine keeps me always on my toes, as anything can come through the doors of an emergency department. My professional interests include out-of-hospital medicine, airway management, shock, trauma, and health care economics.

My original research on methods of rapid oxygenation in emergency situations was published in the journal Academic Emergency Medicine, and my protocol for methods of emergency triage and treatment in the New York City Fire Department appeared in the journal Prehospital and Disaster Medicine. I’ve also given presentations at medical conferences.

To stay up-to-date in my practice, I read medical journals, listen to podcasts, and attend medical conferences. My membership in the American Academy of Emergency Medicine and the National Association of EMS Physicians also provides the latest thinking in my field.

The Hawaii Permanente Medical Group impressed me as an ideal place to work because of the integrity of its providers, its patient first philosophy, its excellent facilities and equipment, and its great support staff. Being able to live in this beautiful place among warm and welcoming people was the “icing on the cake.”

It’s my belief that we should treat one another as we ourselves would want to be treated. That’s a good rule of thumb in most situations, but especially the hospital, where people can feel frightened and vulnerable. Treating patients with dignity is a big part of this approach.

How I thrive

To stay healthy and balanced, I practice yoga, meditate, swim, snorkel, paddleboard, hike, and generally enjoy anything outdoors. My other interests include nutrition and health, alternative medicine, playing the harmonica, going to the beach, and visiting farmers' markets. I eat well, drink homemade smoothies, spend quality time with family and friends, and stop to look at the stars.

Kaiser Permanente works together with participating providers to ensure all cultural competence obligations are met. We are dedicated to ensuring that services are provided in a culturally competent manner to all members, including those with limited English proficiency and reading skills; as well as those with diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

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.
