About Me

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my Web page! It is my pleasure to be your child’s pediatrician. I hope you will take full advantage of Kaiser Permanente’s online resources available to you through Kaiser Permanente.org. Please feel free to e-mail my office via our secure e-mail system.

Biography

I was born and raised in New York, and came to the Inland Empire by way of the Bay Area, where I trained for three years at Kaiser Permanente San Francisco. I joined Kaiser Permanente Riverside in 2003. I am very proud to practice here because I believe Kaiser’s healthcare system is one of the best in the United States.

About my practice

I have multiple clinical interests. Prior to medical school, I earned a Ph.D. in developmental biology. I studied the molecular mechanisms of cell fate specification in the small intestine, and I still maintain a special interest in gastroenterology. I also enjoy neonatal medicine, and keep up my clinical skills by caring for patients on our labor and delivery unit. At the other end of the spectrum, I enjoy working with teenagers and take special interest in eating disorders.

How I thrive

When I am not at work, I most enjoy spending time with my husband, son, and daughter. To stay fit, I ride my bike – always wearing my helmet – and swim at least once a week. I look forward to seeing your children grow up over the years. May they eat well, play hard, and thrive!
