Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente and I look forward to working with you to care for your child.
I am originally from the Boston area. I attended Harvard University for my undergraduate work, followed by medical school at Boston University. I moved to the San Diego area when I was in the United States Navy. I loved the area and opted to stay on after my military commitment was over.
I love children and feel privileged to assist parents in caring for their families. I want to get to know families through regular well-child care so that I am best poised to assist when a child is ill. I am a strong advocate of vaccines and preventive health in general. 25 years of pediatric practice has taught me to appreciate the variety of ways that healthy families function. I believe in working within each family’s unique framework to help everyone in it achieve good health.
I am an avid do-it-yourselfer and have completed some complicated home improvement projects (ask me about my diamond blade tile saw!). I enjoy crafts of all sorts, and I like to bake. I read whenever I have the time and love to hear about great new books.
