Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page and my pediatrics practice in Ventura! I have been a pediatrician with Kaiser Permanente since 2000, and was pleased to join the Ventura group in 2007. I’m happy to see members from birth through age 18.
I am a (mostly) native Californian raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. As the middle child in a family of seven, I have been around children all my life. I have known that I wanted to be a physician since early childhood. After undergraduate training at UC San Diego, I went off on quite an adventure in New Orleans for medical school. I came back to California for my residency and have been here since. My husband and I are the proud parents of three beautiful children and feel very blessed. We enjoy being together as a family and participate in lots of outdoor activities.
About my practice
Kaiser Permanente in Ventura has two pediatricians, including myself. Our office is conveniently located behind the Ventura County Government Center. My goal is to provide high-quality preventive care to my patients and try to make each visit an opportunity for education in maintaining your child’s health.
How I thrive
As a busy mother of three, attempting to find balance in my life can be challenging. However, while I feel it is important for children to see their parents as great role models in the work environment, I also feel it is important for parents to have a very active role in their children’s lives. To accomplish all this, I take time to exercise frequently. We strive to be healthy eaters, and we focus on reading, enjoying meals together, and playing sports.
