About Me

I'm happy to have this opportunity to introduce myself and share information about my practice. I wanted to become a pediatrician since high school and have enjoyed working with children since that time.


I grew up and went to medical school in Wisconsin. I did my pediatric internship and residency through the Navy in San Diego. I fell in love with Southern California and decided to settle here. I enjoy mountain biking and hiking over the various trails offered here. Making healthy choices and preventative care is important for good health. I would like to work together with you to keep your child healthy and give the most appropriate treatment when they are sick. I feel it's important to listen to your concerns and come to decisions together for the best treatment for your child. Keeping a balanced life is important.

About my practice

It has been rewarding to be able to be in a practice that allows me to develop relationships with families over the years. I enjoy working for Kaiser Permanente—we have a great staff and work well together.

How I thrive

Working out and staying active outdoors helps keep me fit and refreshes my mind. I enjoy spending time with my family and volunteering at my local church.
