About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself and tell you about life in the Emergency Department.


As a child, I either wanted to be starting center fielder for the Chicago Cubs or become a doctor. I loved baseball but also loved science, discovery, and the ability to fix things and make people feel better. I grew up in the Midwest, attended the University of Minnesota Medical School, and completed my residency in emergency medicine in Los Angeles.

About my practice

I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente with wonderful colleagues and patients, and look forward to helping you if you need my care. Our team includes physicians, nurses, and other professionals who strive to provide compassionate care.

How I thrive

I firmly believe preventive care, a positive attitude, and a healthy lifestyle can make a big difference in one's life ' and I strive to live by that every day. Life balance is key. When I'm not with my family, I enjoy running, cycling, and playing golf.
