Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I am excited to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I am proud to be a physician at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues, the staff, and our members. I look forward to working with you to improve your health and well-being.
I am a native Southern Californian, born and raised in the Los Angeles area. I was encouraged to become a doctor by my father, who is a retired orthopedic surgeon, and my mother, who was a research chemist for the FDA. Both of my parents continue to be an example of the caring and compassion that I try to emulate on a daily basis. I am a busy mother of three teens but try to recharge by doing some of the things I enjoy, such as reading, yoga, scuba diving, and travel. I recently took up riding motorcycles!
About my practice
I believe strongly in healthy living and preventive care. A healthy diet and regular exercise are important for all of us. It is my job to partner with you to keep you healthy and happy throughout your life, and I will be actively involved in helping you make your health care decisions.
How I thrive
I wholeheartedly support Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of health in mind, body, and spirit and try to live it in my life every day. Although work-life balance is difficult in the 21st century, my family life is my major priority. Your well-being is a close second! I enjoy family outings and watching my son's football games. Hot yoga has been a particular passion of mine, as well as walking with my husband and our new puppy Jax.
