Where I practice
Welcome! Please read a little about me below.
I grew up laughing and playing outside in Poway, California, which is a small city northeast of San Diego. I still enjoy laughing and playing outside as often as I can by hiking, biking, surfing, paddling, swimming, fishing, skiing, and much more. Swimming provided me with a college scholarship, and I (might) still hold a 1994 backstroke swimming record at Pepperdine University. As an LACO beach lifeguard, I met my amazing husband, and we now have 2 wonderful daughters. My training at Western University Osteopathic Medical School helped me further understand the important connection of mind, body, and attitude. This was continued during my military training with the US Navy at US Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton and US Naval Hospital Guam, where I provided expanded medical care for military personnel and their families as well as our island hosts.
About my practice
Throughout my life, I have remained physically active as a means of preventive care, and I encourage members to be active, as it is a blessing with many rewards. Please take control of your health and come see me at the Santa Monica Medical Office for regular preventive visits, as well as when you are not feeling well. Also take advantage by emailing me or by booking a telephone or video visit today.
How I thrive
Every day I find learning opportunities and ways to practice maintaining a good attitude and a healthy body.
