Welcome, Kaiser Permanente Member! I hope you find this information useful. Please feel free to ask any questions regarding your anesthetic care at your preoperative visit or on the day of your surgery. Rest assured that your comfort and satisfaction are my top priority.
I am a native of Southern California and I love the cultural diversity, weather, and relaxed atmosphere of Los Angeles. I completed my undergraduate studies, medical school, and residency training in the Southern California region. I was attracted to the field of anesthesiology because of its emphasis on physiology, diverse operations, and practical applications.
At Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles Medical Center, we implement a team-oriented model of care. In other words, physicians supervise nurse anesthetists in the care of our members. You are monitored very closely throughout the process. We are confident that this approach provides high quality anesthesia and results in member satisfaction. I believe that members are their best personal advocates, so please feel free to express any concerns you may have.
I thrive by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. My life goal is to have a happy family and a successful career. I enjoy spending time with my family, and I strive to be as good of a person as my dog, Lucy, believes me to be. In my free time, I enjoy golf, tennis, snorkeling, music, photography, and theatre. On a nice, sunny weekend, I find it relaxing to read a book and sip coffee at the local coffee house. If you see me, feel free to wave hello!
