Welcome! I know how important it is to feel comfortable with your doctor, and I hope this page will help you get to know me. I am glad to have the opportunity to introduce myself, and share a bit about my practice.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, attended college at UC Berkeley, and lived several years on the East Coast. I received medical training at Georgetown University, where the philosophy of cura personalis – caring for the whole person – was instilled in me. I completed residency training at UCLA. I am married, and have a wonderful daughter.
I chose to practice family medicine because I enjoy partnering with patients and their families to not only prevent and manage disease, but to achieve optimal health. I believe every person is unique and can benefit from individualized care. I care for my patients as I would members of my own family.
I believe that true wellness stems from a healthy mind, body, and spirit. I thrive by spending time with family, and staying active with interests including running, painting, writing, and practicing yoga. I am a co-founder of a non-profit organization that helps support resource-poor communities in Kenya.
