About me

I was born and raised in the Central Valley farmland region of California, and stayed in California to do my undergraduate studies in biology and Latin American studies at Stanford University. Family is an important part of my life, so it wasn’t easy to leave them behind to study medicine at the University of Michigan Medical School and later complete my residency at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, where I was chief resident. Without their love and support I wouldn’t be the physician I am today.

About my practice

I chose to go into medicine for a number of reasons, in large part because I wanted to provide care to underserved communities. Growing up in the agricultural heartland of California and doing global health work in South America brought me into contact with communities that didn’t have access to health care. Another reason I chose medicine is because I was drawn to the opportunities for lifelong teaching and learning the field of medicine provides. My parents are teachers and I’m a former educator, so I’ve always strived to learn more and to pass that knowledge on to others.

I’ve given presentations on various topics, including drug resistance in flesh-eating disease at a meeting of the Society for Critical Care Medicine; fireworks injury at a meeting of the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine; and emergency stroke management at an American College of Emergency Physicians Scientific Assembly.

My research has addressed the use of antibiotics in preventing infection in open fractures published in the Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery, the use of Spanish curriculum in U.S. medical schools published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine; mercury levels in pregnant women, children, and seafood from Mexico City published in the Journal of Environmental Research; and emergency department care of sepsis and septic shock.

To keep up with current medical research, I read professional journals and collaborate with my colleagues. My professional organization, the American College of Emergency Physicians, also keeps me informed of the latest advances in my field.

During my residency, I had the fortunate opportunity to rotate through the emergency department at Kaiser Permanente Moanalua Medical Center. I really enjoyed my work, my colleagues, the community, and the natural beauty of the island.

How I thrive

I like outdoor activities, especially hiking. It’s a great way to explore and stay fit. I enjoy music and maintain positive personal relationships with family and friends. I also like to travel and try new foods.

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.
