Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Hi there! Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself and tell you about my practice. It is important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you get to know me better. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente among my wonderful colleagues and patients, and look forward to working with you as well.
I am originally from Oklahoma and spent most of my life there before coming to California. I moved here initially to complete my medical training and liked it so much I decided to stay. My favorite part of being a physician is getting to interact with a wide variety of wonderful families and helping to give them support throughout their cancer experience.
I feel privileged to work with a great pediatric cancer treatment team here at Kaiser Permanente. We believe that wellness is greatly enhanced by comfortable communication between the member and the health care team, so we actively strive for that goal.
I believe that good health starts with prevention and that healthy physicians set great examples for patients. I am an avid pursuer of physical fitness, utilizing both cardiovascular and resistance training four to five days per week. Being physically fit makes me feel good and strengthens the overall mind-body connection, which is essential for good health and longevity.
