Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I’m excited to have this opportunity to introduce myself to you. I feel very fortunate to be a part of the Kaiser Permanente family and consider it an honor and a privilege to care for you and your family.
I was born and brought up in Los Angeles, and while I spent almost 10 years in the Bay Area and a couple years in New York, I am happy to be back in sunny Southern California, close to family and friends. I completed my residency at UC San Francisco, during which time I discovered my passion for caring for children, and I went on to complete a fellowship in pediatric anesthesiology at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford. After completing the fellowship, I worked in New York for several years before joining Kaiser Permanente in 2016.
About my practice
I feel honored that members have entrusted me with their care, and I strive to treat them as I would my own family. I believe that respect, trust, and communication are the cornerstones to a successful physician-member relationship. My practice as a pediatric and adult anesthesiologist ranges widely from routine outpatient surgery to sedation, including neonatal and obstetric anesthesia. My primary goal is always the safety and comfort of members, and I consider it an honor and privilege to be able to care for members and their families during what can be a challenging and stressful time.
How I thrive
Outside of work, I love spending time with my family and friends. My husband and I enjoy hiking, traveling, and exploring new cultures and cuisines.
