Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate and proud to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my great colleagues and our members, and look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I am a native to Southern California, and from a very young age I had the desire to become a physician. I am the daughter of two amazing family physicians who had a tremendous influence on my decision to become a physician. I knew that I, too, wanted to make a real difference in people’s lives. I completed my undergraduate training at UC Riverside. I went to medical school at UCLA, and my family medicine residency training was done at Kaiser Permanente Fontana.
About my practice
When it comes to being a physician, good communication with you and your family, along with education and preventive medicine, are important to me. We will work together to understand your body and your health. This, I feel, is the key to keeping you healthy and happy.
How I thrive
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. Although I truly enjoy my career as a physician, my family life is a major priority. I enjoy spending time with my husband and three beautiful children, as well as friends. Fitness is also an important part of my daily activities, and I enjoy cycling, hiking with my family, and jogging.
