Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients.
Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I look forward to working with you to care for your health!
I am a native Southern Californian who grew up as a Kaiser Permanente member. Even when I was a young child, I knew that I wanted to be a doctor, in part because of the compassionate care I saw my uncle and grandparents receive in the last few years of their life. I knew that I wanted to be able to make a real difference in people's lives, and practicing medicine gives me that opportunity.
I believe in living a healthy lifestyle and practicing preventive care in order to stay healthy, but of course, I'm also here for you when you aren't feeling well. I like to think of us as partners in health, and want you to be actively involved in taking care of your health.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I volunteer at homeless clinics and I have organized a medical mission to Tanzania. I'm a runner and practice yoga regularly, and have participated in several Marathons. I also make it a priority to set aside time to just relax, reflect and enjoy the company of loved ones.
