About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I am proud to practice cardiology at Kaiser Permanente Riverside.


Near the end of the Vietnam War, when I was 4 years old, my family immigrated to the United States. I spent my childhood in Pennsylvania, and completed high school and the remainder of my education in Southern California. My parents imparted strong values, including the importance of education. I have always excelled in science, and a career in medicine was a natural fit for me. I met my husband in medical school, and we now have three beautiful children.

About my practice

I am a heart specialist, but my philosophy of practice considers your total health and wellbeing. In the increasingly complex and technical world of cardiology, my role is to diagnose, consult, and guide members through choices and treatment plans. I encourage my members to discuss all their concerns with me. We are partners in good health, but only with your total participation can we achieve the best results.

How I thrive

For my own wellness, I try to strike a balance between work and family life. I am passionate about my work, and it gives me great satisfaction to be able to provide excellent service and care to my patients. However, it is also a priority to care for my three young children and watch them grow and develop. Their youth and energy rejuvenates me.
