Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have the opportunity to introduce myself to you. I feel fortunate to work for Kaiser Permanente and look forward to helping you stay healthy.
I am originally from Los Angeles. I moved briefly to the East Coast for medical school and then settled back in Los Angeles to pursue my career and raise my children. I enjoy being an active person, spending time with my family, and reading. I chose a career in medicine because I like the subject matter, and more importantly, I feel good about making a difference in people's lives each day.
In my practice I have the opportunity to meet new people and share a very important event with them. As an anesthesiologist I play a major role in reducing patient anxiety, not just with my medications, but with my compassion for them. I enjoy caring for people through these life-changing events and helping them feel more comfortable during the process.
I take care of myself by eating right, exercising, and making sure I get some time for relaxation. I participate in school activities with my kids and watch them play soccer on the weekends. I stay balanced by keeping my life simple and taking advantage of each moment.
