About me

I’m originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico. I went to Colorado State University for my Bachelor of Science and to Nova Southeastern University in Florida for my master’s degree in physician assistant studies. I’m now certified as a PA and belong to Pi Alpha – The National Honor Society for Physician Assistants.

Both of my parents have been a big influence on me and have played a big part in my career choice. I admired my dad for his intelligence and hard work as a physician and my mom for her valuable insights as a high school counselor. I’ve moved several times - first for school and then to accompany my husband, who was in the U.S. Army. That’s what first brought us to beautiful Oahu.

About my practice

I’ve always loved science, especially when it involves the human body. I knew I wanted a career that would allow me to care for people and to help them feel better, both emotionally and physically. My interest in the medical field was sparked by seeing my dad’s work as a physician and being introduced to the role of the PA by my mom while I was in college. As I learned more about this field, I knew it was right for me.

PAs often work in general medicine but may specialize in other fields. I decided to continue in general medicine through family practice, acute care, or internal medicine because of a need for more providers and better access to care in these areas. I also like being able to treat a wide variety of medical conditions and to provide preventive care and patient education. My other professional interests include diabetes, hypertension, coronary artery disease, cholesterol, and procedures such as suturing.

To stay current in medicine, I read the publication of my membership organization, the Journal of the American Academy of PAs and The Clinical Advisor, a periodical for PAs and nurse practitioners. I also listen to the Urgent Care RAP podcasts and attend continuing medical education programs.

I was happy to join Hawaii Permanente Medical Group for several reasons. For one, this organization is highly rated, which told me that providers here strive to perform at their best to deliver great patient care. I was also attracted to the pleasant, modern facilities and the warm and welcoming environment.

Accurate communication is key to avoiding medical errors so providers should always listen carefully to their patients. It’s also important for patients to understand their conditions so they can make informed decisions about their health. I enjoy getting to know my patients. Each one has a different life story, and I try to always be compassionate and supportive.

How I thrive

I de-stress and stay healthy by exercising, whether cross training in a boot camp class, hiking, kayaking, paddleboarding, going to the beach with my husband, or swimming with my Lab. I also enjoy good food and checking out the wonderful restaurants on Oahu.

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.
