About me

I was born in New Zealand and moved to California with my family when I was 10 years old. When we traveled back and forth between our two homes, we’d stop over in either Hawaii or Fiji. I was most comfortable in Hawaii, because it felt like a combination of the two places where I was being raised. Both of my parents are physicians, and this inspired me to follow in their footsteps. When they provided medical care in the Pacific atoll of Tarawa, I went along. Going to school there also gave me an interest in traveling and experiencing other cultures.

I went to the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) for my bachelor’s degree and to the University of California, San Diego for my medical degree and internship. I did my residency at the University of Washington, where I was chief resident, went back to California to do my fellowship at UCLA in dementia and neurobehavior, and then became board certified in psychiatry.

About my practice

My parents showed me that being a physician was a great way to help people. I also enjoy trying to piece together how biology, environment, and social influences affect us. My other interests include neurobehavior, psychopharmacology, and patient and family education.

By attending conferences, reading medical journals, and taking continuing education courses, I ensure that I’m up-to-date on the latest developments in medicine.

Before moving to Hawaii, I worked as a Permanente physician for 10 years in Southern California. I feel so fortunate to be able to continue practicing in the Kaiser Permanente system, which delivers quality care and where I can work among wonderful colleagues and support staff.

I love hearing people's stories. Getting to know them gives me a better sense of both their medical and emotional needs. I see myself as a partner with my patients, educating and guiding them as they make health care decisions. I emphasize overall health and preventive care, which includes being socially and physically active.

How I thrive

To stay in good physical condition, I practice yoga, backpack, hike, run trails, go stand-up paddleboarding, and scuba dive. Being out in nature is always therapeutic for me, especially when I’m doing landscape painting. Quality time with friends and family also helps to keep me balanced. When I lived in California, I was involved with a studio artist group, a paddling team, a land conservancy organization, a forest watch program, a search-and-rescue team with the county sheriff’s department. Now that I’m settled in Hawaii, I plan to look into similar activities.

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.

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. If you would like more current information on a practitioner's license, call either the Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs Consumer Resource Center at (808) 587-3295 or visit their website, or call the Kaiser Permanente Customer Service Center at (808) 432-5955 (Oahu) or 1-800-966-5955 (toll free, neighbor islands). For the deaf, hard of hearing, or speech impaired, call 1-800-966-5955 or 711 (TTY).
