About me

I was born and raised in Virginia, where I married my high school sweetheart and attended college and medical school. My husband and I moved to Florida for my residency and then to California, where I worked as a hospitalist. I next joined a pediatric practice back in Virginia and worked for seven years while starting a family. When the opportunity arose to live and work on a beautiful island, we jumped at the chance. My parents influenced me in my decision to become a physician, encouraging hard work and the pursuit of a personally rewarding career. They even introduced me to Hawaii on a family trip to Japan, Korea, and Hawaii many years ago.

About my practice

School and study have always been enjoyable for me, and a career in medicine provides a lifetime of learning. My choice of specialty was determined by the children themselves. They are such a blessing! Every patient room that I enter holds a child in a different stage of life seeing the world from a different perspective. Their candid and humorous comments both challenge and entertain. I am a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and a PTA member. At the Dyson Community Pediatrics National Symposium and at Pediatric Academic Society meetings I have spoken about maternal perceptions of childhood obesity. To stay current in my field, I attend medical conferences and read pediatric journals. Also, I speak some basic medical Spanish. When I interviewed for my present position, I knew that I wanted to be part of the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group family. The physicians were warm and welcoming, and there was a feeling of camaraderie and support. The emphasis here is on quality of care and maintaining a healthy work-life balance, and this means better care for patients. It is a joy for me to welcome newborn infants into the world and watch them grow. As an advocate for children, I partner with families when they need help caring for a child.

How I thrive

Exercise and a healthy diet are daily goals, but I admit that chocolate makes me smile and smiling is also healthy! I try to stay connected with family and friends, old and new, near and far. Prayer gets me through the challenging days. I enjoy beach time, reading with my two small children, traveling, and eating anything my husband cooks.

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.
