Welcome to my Web page! I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to introduce myself to you. I look forward to working with you to improve and maintain your health.
I’m a native Southern Californian who grew up as a Kaiser Permanente member. I’ve wanted to be an obstetrician since before I knew how to spell that word. Obstetrics provides me with a special opportunity to partake in bringing new lives into the world. Being a gynecologic surgeon gives me the immense satisfaction of knowing I can use my brain, hands, and heart to remedy a wide variety of women’s health problems.
As a Kaiser Permanente physician, I’m surrounded by a diverse and impressive group of colleagues who share my goals of providing compassionate and comprehensive health care, as well as maintaining a healthy work-life balance. More recently, I’ve opted to focus most of my work hours on our Labor and Delivery suite—welcoming babies and caring for pregnant women in our high-risk unit.
I guess I’m a typical mom in that my family is my passion. I jog with my kids at their running club. I lead my daughter's Girl Scout Brownies troop. My husband and I run together once our two kids are in bed. I enjoy traveling, swimming, snowboarding, and quiet time with my husband.
