Hello and welcome to my personal Web page! I am so excited to meet you soon. Since it is important for you to feel comfortable with one's provider, please read below to get to know me.
Born at the Kaiser Permanente hospital in Bellflower, I was raised in Orange County. I attended Harvard for college, where I majored in biology and also studied both Spanish and French. On a summer internship to Santiago, Chile, I fell in love with the field of obstetrics and gynecology. While I loved Boston and Cambridge, I came home to attend medical school (at UCLA) and complete my ob-gyn residency (at UC Irvine). I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2016 and have loved working here and taking care of members since then.
Since coming to Kaiser Permanente Orange County in 2016, I have very much enjoyed and cherished the opportunity to form special relationships with members and their families as I've walked alongside them through some of their life's biggest and most important events and medical experiences. Whether obstetric or gynecologic, I consider it an honor to be allowed into women's lives in such personal times and events.
I engage physically, emotionally, and mentally through a combination of running, yoga, and Body Pump classes at 24 Hour Fitness. In my leisure, I spend as much time with my family and friends as possible. My "fun" interests include watching or participating in game shows (I've been on 2!) and putting together jigsaw puzzles.
