Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients.
Hello! Welcome to my Web page where you’ll get some information about me and my practice. It's an exciting time, and I believe we provide high-quality health care. I am proud to be part of the Kaiser Permanente team and truly enjoy working with our wonderful colleagues and patients. Our technology is a great asset, but I know that it is people who make our organization truly great.
At my kindergarten graduation, my diploma stated what I wanted to be when I grew up: a physician. I feel blessed to have reached that goal, but I consider my biggest accomplishments to be my three wonderful children. As a Southern California native, it's a privilege to serve the children of the Inland Empire, not only as a physician and advocate but also as a friend. For I, too, can tell the difference between Thomas the Tank Engine and Gordon, have a favorite Disney princess, and have Star Wars T-shirt that matches my son's. Maybe it's because I'm not too far in years from my own childhood (so I tell myself!), or maybe it's because one of my goals these days is to stay young at heart.
I believe that preventive care and anticipatory guidance are the backbone of health, especially in pediatrics. Discussions about eating vegetables, helmet use, and cautious navigation through social media are just as important as treating ear infections and providing vaccines that save lives.
To live healthy is to live and appreciate each day to the fullest. For me, that means tickling my kids until they're exhausted from laughing and being there for the field trips. I believe that balance among family, play, and work is crucial for happiness and emotional well-being and therefore also for complete health and wellness.
