Hello, and welcome to my Web page! I'm an internist and bariatric medicine specialist at the Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles Medical Center.
I'm originally from upstate New York and grew up in a very small farm town. I went to college at a small liberal arts college for women called Russell Sage College, also in upstate New York. Afterwards, I moved to Long Island for medical school. After four years there, I made the move into Manhattan for my residency. I loved living in the city, but decided to make a change and came out to lovely Southern California. I love it here!
I started with Kaiser Permanente in 2007. I work with a great team of doctors, nurses, and other support staff who help keep things running smoothly.
Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my husband and young son. I think work and life balance are very important and strive to continue to improve that balance in my life. Exercise, time with friends, traveling, and dinners out are all great ways to work self-care into my life.
