About Me

Hi there, and welcome to my Web page! I appreciate you visiting and I hope this page helps you get to know me a bit better.


I am a Southern California native who also spent a brief time in Rochester, MN. The beauty of medicine is the opportunity to find one's special niche to leave a positive imprint in this world; I am blessed to have found my niche in palliative medicine.

About my practice

Palliative medicine is a growing specialty to meet the needs of people with serious illness—whether curative or noncurative—in order to provide expert symptom management, facilitate difficult conversations, embrace whole-person care, and provide an extra layer of support for you and your loved ones. My team and I consider you and your loved ones an integral part of the team—each having equally important input to formulating an individualized treatment plan.

How I thrive

As much as I seek solitary time, I also thrive with spending quality time with family and friends. I enjoy leisurely biking, reading and listening to fiction, short stories, and personal narratives, and perspectives that make me question my reality. Other passions of mine are immersing myself in other cultures, and eating comfort and foreign foods.
