Hello, and thank you for taking the time to visit my Web page.
I grew up in Arlington, VA. I attended Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA, where I received my bachelor's degree in painting and printmaking. After graduating, I attended medical school at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD where I met my husband who is an orthopedic sports physician at Kaiser Permanente. I completed my residency in internal medicine at Washington University in St. Louis. I am passionate about caring for underserved communities and have done so in the United States and internationally. One of the great joys in my life is the satisfaction that I get helping patients’ live healthier and happier lives.
I started my internal medicine practice at Kaiser Permanente in 2015. I care for members ages 18 and older, and have a special interest in Women’s Health. I am a believer in measured and appropriate medical testing and treatment. I strive to support your healthy living habits, help you to overcome unhealthy habits, and care for you when you are sick. I support preventive care, including pap smears, vaccines, mammograms, colonoscopies, and screening for diabetes and hyperlipidemia.
My life is centered on my family. Together we enjoy church activities, hiking, outdoor activities, and traveling. When I find time to relax I enjoy reading a book, listening to music, and cooking.
