Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients.
Welcome to my Web page. I appreciate the opportunity to introduce myself, and share a bit about my family medicine practice.
I was born in New York City, and raised in Orange County. I received my bachelor’s degree in physiology at UC San Diego. While at UC San Diego, I participated in mission trips to Mexico. Through those experiences, I came to realize that medicine was my calling. This was reaffirmed during medical school and my residency, which provided opportunities to participate in medical missions in the inner city and Central America. I have been to Honduras three times and Nicaragua once. I hope to return to Central America on medical missions.
I work with a great team of colleagues. I love practicing family medicine because I treat people of all ages – sometimes multiple generations of a single family. I especially enjoy working with kids and adolescents, and taking care of entire families. I believe in whole-person care and strongly advocate healthy living. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved.
I thrive by balancing activates in various elements of my life. My faith, family, and friends are what keep me sane and are the most important things to me. I also enjoy watching sports and being active in sports, including softball, flag football, and snowboarding.
