About me

I knew at age 14 that I wanted to be a doctor after being treated by an amazing family physician. Pediatrics was a natural attraction for me in medical school, as I enjoyed the opportunity to work with families and sick children in the process of healing from diseases. I went on to specialize in pediatrics in Nigeria and spent one year in clinical dermatology in London, England. I completed a pediatric residency in Greenville, North Carolina, after having moved to the United States from Nigeria. I enjoy living in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and two boys. We enjoy sampling different cuisines as a family and, in the busyness of our daily lives, just taking time to be together.

About my practice

I enjoy working with parents to enable them to take charge of the health of their children. I also more recently have discovered a knack for connecting with adolescents as they make that transition to adulthood. My areas of interest include childhood obesity, the influence of community violence on the health of children, and skin problems in children. One of the best things about being a Kaiser Permanente provider is having immediate access via a fantastic electronic medical record to all the health information I need to give the best care to my patients. I work with an amazing team of pediatricians in an enabling and collegial atmosphere, which allows me to direct all my energies to caring for my patients.

How I thrive

I do make time to be physically active by cycling, attending local Zumba classes, and taking lunchtime walks with a friend. My favorite pastime is to curl up on the sofa with a good book from the library while listening to contemporary gospel music or jazz. I enjoy cooking, especially if I can get my boys to eat my creations! My family and I are members of a great local church. I am currently challenging myself to learn Spanish and play the piano.
