Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I am excited to become one of your healthcare providers. I hope the information below will provide some useful information about me. I look forward to getting to know about you.
I have recently moved from Colorado to California, and I am really enjoying my time here. I am from a large family and have 3 children of my own, who are grown. I also have 2 wonderful grandchildren and am excited about being a grandmother. I chose to go back to medical school late, once I figured out what I wanted to do when I grew up. I love being a family physician because it allows me to get to know not just the members I treat, but also their families.
About my practice
I am a strong believer in preventive medicine, as I look at it as the best way to maintain your overall health. I do believe we are responsible for our own health and try to always explain why I think something should be done to help you with your health. I believe in being a positive advocate for my members while encouraging them to take control of their own health.
How I thrive
I believe it is important that I take care of myself as I would want all Kaiser Permanente members to take care of themselves. I exercise regularly and make sure I get enough sleep. I enjoy reading and spending time with my husband and our family.
