Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Hello, and welcome to the Optometry Department at Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center! I have been the optometry manager here since 1998, where I spend part of my time as an administrator, and the rest of the time in clinical practice.
I am a second generation Southern Californian. I grew up in the Inland Empire, attended UC Riverside, and then earned my doctorate degree at UC Berkeley. I have many hobbies, including painting, drawing, and quilt making, and have exhibited in various art shows across the country. I am also an active volunteer with the Da Vinci Schools in Hawthorne, California.
I see patients of all ages and enjoy finding customized solutions for eye and vision problems. My practice includes contact lens services and geriatric care.
I find that walking at the beach or in local neighborhoods is a relaxing form of exercise that allows me to think through problems and come up with new ideas. I have been involved with the arts since I was a young child, and I find all creative activities to be a great way to thrive.
