Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients.
Welcome to my Web page! I come from a proud Kaiser Permanente family. My husband and his brother are Kaiser Permanente doctors, and most of my extended family are members.
I’m glad you have discovered Kaiser Permanente. I’m certainly glad I did, first as a teenage member and then as a family physician, working with a wonderful group of physicians at the Thousand Oaks Medical Offices. My three children are nearly grown, so I’m happy to be finding more time for books, hiking, and travel. I go skiing every year with 18 family members. Because I am concerned about poverty and health care access, I volunteer at the Westminster Free Clinic.
As a family physician, I enjoy working with several generations of families and getting to know people over many years. After 24 years at Kaiser Permanente, I’ve noticed that some of the babies I once cared for are now adults! My emphasis is on preventive care, but I’m also here to help you when you are sick.
I maintain a healthy life by balancing work, family, play, and fitness. Kaiser Permanente has helped me find this balance by allowing me to work a flexible schedule. I love to stay fit through cycling, swimming, yoga, and long walks or jogs with my dog. To keep motivated, I participate in an occasional 5K run.
