Where I practice
Thank you for visiting my Web page! I am so happy to share my story with you.
I grew up in a small town in Northern California, but have lived in sunny Southern California for more than 15 years, and now call it home. I attended Loma Linda University School of Medicine and then completed my obstetrics and gynecology residency in the United States Navy at Naval Medical Center San Diego. After residency, I practiced as an Ob/Gyn at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton for four years, fulfilling my military obligation. My time in the Navy was an amazing experience and I have a special place in my heart for this nation's armed forces. I moved to Orange County in 2010 when I married my husband, and we have a beautiful little girl.
About my practice
I worked with a tremendous staff at the Kaiser Permanente Kraemer Medical Office for three years, but have recently moved closer to home at the wonderful Harbor-MacArthur Medical Offices. I practice general obstetrics and gynecology, providing comprehensive care to women throughout their lives. I consider it a privilege to help women in many areas, including maintaining health through preventive screenings, caring for them through miracle of pregnancy and childbirth, and diagnosing and treating gynecologic issues. I truly believe in the Golden Rule, and daily strive to treat all my patients as I would like to be treated, which is with respect and kindness.
How I thrive
Although I absolutely love my job, I maintain balance with a strong faith, supportive family, and wonderful friends. I am a firm believer in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and believe that we are the best advocates for our own health. When not working, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband, chasing our toddler around, and playing with our golden retriever, Lexi. To stay active, I love to run and sweat it out in hot yoga!
