I was born and raised in Los Angeles. As an undergraduate, I studied literature and natural sciences, then completed my medical education and training at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. While at L.A. County Medical Center I chose to pursue a career in women's health and, specifically, training in women's cancer care. I am dedicated to providing top-of-the-line care to my patients, and I believe Kaiser Permanente is the institution that allows me to do so best.
Gynecologic oncology is unique in that one doctor provides both the surgical and medical therapy for a patient with cancer. I treat all gynecologic cancers including, but not limited to, those of the uterus, ovaries, and cervix. I specialize in complex pelvic surgery and perform minimally invasive surgery whenever possible. In particular, I am interested in precancerous lesions of the female genital tract, including the cervix and uterus, and have published research on this topic. I am also interested in surgery to address genetic abnormalities such as BRCA 1 and 2 and Lynch syndrome. Ultimately, I strive to provide comprehensive and innovative care to my patients. I practice individualized patient care to ensure that all of my patients receive the best treatment options available and that they feel cared for in the process.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, 2 daughters, and my extended family. I take great pleasure in watching my children learn and grow. I continue to be an avid reader of both medical and non-medical texts and love listening to live music with friends.
