Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I'm excited to be a part of the Kaiser Permanente family, and to have the opportunity to tell you about myself! I hope you find the information on this page to be helpful. It's important to me that you feel comfortable with your doctor so that we can work together as a team to take care of your health.
I was born in Florida but spent my formative years in Dayton, Ohio. My family then moved to the suburbs of Los Angeles when I was fifteen years old. I obtained my undergraduate degree in political science and played on the varsity tennis team at UCSD. After spending four great years in San Diego, I returned to Ohio to attend the Ohio State University for my medical training. Go Buckeyes! Following medical school I came back to sunny Southern California and completed both my residency and fellowship training at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles. After being away for nearly twelve years, I am excited to return to San Diego, the community I fell in love with as a young student.
My passion is helping people improve their health so that they can spend less time worrying, and more time doing the things they love. Having lived in different parts of the country, I appreciate each individual's unique background, experiences, and heritage. I enjoy getting to know my patients and working with them as a team to improve and maintain their quality of life.
I love spending time outdoors. I am a tennis fanatic and still treasure my time on the tennis court. I enjoy basketball and running and love watching my Buckeyes play college football. I also enjoy travelling and LOVE to eat!
