About Me

Welcome to my Web page! Thank you for considering me to be your child's pediatrician.


I am a Los Angeles area native. I grew up in Hacienda Heights, then moved across town to complete my undergraduate degree in biology with a minor in Latin American studies at UCLA. Afterwards, I taught high school in the Los Angeles area for a couple of years before moving halfway across the country to Kansas City, where I earned my medical degree from the University of Kansas. As much as I loved the people and the barbecue, I knew that I wanted to come home eventually so I was ecstatic to have my internship and residency at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center.

About my practice

I can't say enough how happy I am to be able to now serve at East Los Angeles Medical Offices; we have such great patients and staff! I care for members from birth to age eighteen.

How I thrive

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to the beach, traveling, hiking, staying physically active, and enjoying all of the great food that Los Angeles has to offer. I also enjoy doing international medical missions whenever my schedule allows.
