Where I practice
Thank you for visiting my Web page. I look forward to providing you with a safe and positive experience at Kaiser Permanente Downey Medical Center. If you, or your child, are having surgery at Kaiser Permanente Downey Medical Center, perhaps I may get a chance to meet you and provide your anesthesia during your visit.
I was born in Manila—the capital of Philippines—and moved to the United States when I was young. My family and I lived in Mississippi and Illinois prior to moving to California, where I finished my education and medical training. Growing up with physicians in the family introduced me to the field of medicine, but I chose it as a career to make a difference in other people's lives.
About my practice
I’m a pediatric anesthesiologist. Although I’m pediatric trained, I provide anesthesia to all age groups. At Kaiser Permanente Downey Medical Center, I work with exceptional partners. We practice anesthesiology at Downey Medical Center, Bellflower Ambulatory Surgical Center, and at the Gardena Medical Offices.
How I thrive
Health is wealth. I believe having a healthy body, healthy relationships, and a healthy outlook are true riches in life that are to be shared with one another. As a mother of three, and a wife for over ten years, I find ways to stay balanced without losing focus. Music is my passion, and teaching and listening to my children play the piano gives me great joy.
