About me

I was born into a military family in Gainesville, Texas. My family and I moved often when I was a child, until we finally settled in Oklahoma (while my father was serving in Vietnam). I first came to Maui for vacation and immediately fell in love with the island’s cultural diversity and warm sense of aloha. Upon returning to the U.S. Mainland, I began searching for a job in Hawaii, and six months later I moved to Maui and never looked back.

About my practice

My longtime fascination with math and science drove me to be the first in my family to pursue a college education and degree. I really enjoyed my undergraduate studies and experiences, and was lucky enough to meet medical students who encouraged me to seriously consider a career in medicine. During medical school, one influential teacher was a psychiatrist who made learning fun, while exposing me to the different aspects of medicine. My interest in human behavior grew so much that I decided to specialize in psychiatry. I enjoy working in a small clinic setting with the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group because of the collegiality and teamwork among the physicians and medical staff. I also appreciate the collaboration and support, which helps provide consistent and high quality patient care.

How I thrive

I stay healthy by taking advantage of Hawaii’s beautiful outdoor environment by snorkeling and golfing. Music and playing the guitar keep me relaxed. Traveling, going to the beach and being a handyman around the house are also some of my hobbies.

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.
