Where I practice
I am fortunate to be a part of Kaiser Permanente medicine. I look forward to partnering with you to achieve healthy skin. Dermatology is a dynamic specialty. I strive to practice evidence-based dermatology. I see kids and adults for a range of conditions related to skin, hair, and nails.
My first exposure to Kaiser Permanente was as a young girl growing up in Denver, Colorado. My family had just emigrated from the Philippines when I was 10 years old. Dr. Phelps took care of me and my whole family.
About my practice
I attended the University of Denver, where I majored in biology and minored in chemistry and speech communication. I went to medical school and finished my dermatology residency at the University of Colorado. I worked in several multispecialty groups, including Kaiser Permanente in Portland, Oregon and Honolulu, Hawaii. Now I have come full circle, continuing my career at Kaiser Permanente Southern California. I like the camaraderie of a multispecialty clinic. I work with a dedicated team of dermatologists, other physicians, and support staff. Together, we want to keep you healthy.
How I thrive
When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 teenage sons, whether it's hanging out at a beach in Carlsbad or traveling to an exotic locale on a different continent.
