About me

I was born in the Netherlands, immigrated as a child to the U.S., grew up in Montana, and went to Montana State University. I did my medical training, followed by a general surgery internship and residency, at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences. I’m now certified by the American Board of Surgery and American Board of Lifestyle Medicine. I was delighted to have the opportunity to move to Maui with my husband, who has ties here.

About my practice

I’ve wanted to be a doctor since I was four years old. I chose my specialty in part because I love hands-on work and because it’s so rewarding to see people make huge improvements in their health following surgery. My professional interests include breast surgery -oncoplastic breast surgery in particular- and minimally invasive colon surgery.

At meetings of the Southwestern Surgical Congress on Maui I gave three presentations: on recovery following a new surgery protocol, and another on gas buildup in the venous system during surgery. A third, on doing the risks of doing surgery after drinking alcohol won two awards and was published in the American Journal of Surgery. I spoke at a Northern Plains Vascular Conference on atherosclerosis, and my research on inflammatory bowel disease was published in the journal Case Reports in Medicine.

To keep up with the most current medical research, I read medical papers, participate with online surgeon groups and forums, attend professional conferences, and maintain affiliation with professional organizations that give me access to the latest developments in medicine. I also serve as an assistant professor of surgery at the University of Hawaii, John A. Burns School of Medicine.

The Hawaii Permanente Medical Group’s philosophy and care mode are very appealing to me, especially its emphasis on preventative care. In my opinion, the key to optimal health is to take preventive measures rather than to allow a chronic disease to emerge.

I like to “talk story” with my patients and learn what makes them tick. I treat each of them with the respect that I would want for my own family, and I encourage them to be proactive in taking charge of their health. It’s particularly gratifying to bump into my former patients months after surgery and hear how well they’re doing.

How I thrive

I love a good cardio workout of any type. Mindfulness, yoga, and meditation help me keep my mind and mood healthy and sharp. As a board member of the Vegetarian Society of Hawaii, I love to speak about optimizing health with the vegetarian diet. I also enjoy hiking, biking, sailing, and photography.

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.
