Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients.
Hello, and thank you for visiting my Web page. It is very important that you feel comfortable with your pediatrician, and I hope this will help you start to get to know me. I hope to meet you and look forward to helping you and your family live healthier lives.
I was born and raised in Southern California. I graduated from the UC Berkeley with a degree in biology and then went on to the USC School of Medicine. Immediately after completing my pediatric residency at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in 1999, I began practicing at Kaiser Permanente of Northern California. I transferred to Kaiser Permanente Southern California in 2009 to be closer to family.
I am proud to be one of the pediatricians at the Mission Viejo Medical Office. Our strong team of doctors and nurses makes it a priority to consistently deliver your children compassionate and informative care. I wholeheartedly believe that immunizations, improving nutritional status, increasing physical fitness, and maintaining emotional well-being support the prevention of disease. I feel honored to be entrusted with the care of your children, and I strive to treat them as I would my own family.
I enjoy being outdoors and physically active as much as possible. In the winter, you may find me snowboarding in the local mountains here in Southern California. In the summertime, I maintain my work-life balance by running, stand-up paddle boarding, and high-altitude mountain climbing throughout the state.
