Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Not accepting new patients. Please call 1-888-956-1616.
Welcome to my Web page. I’m excited to be able to introduce myself to you and look forward to meeting you in person. I’ve been with Kaiser Permanente since 1995, and I feel fortunate to work with such a wonderful team of physicians, nurses, and assistants.
I grew up in a military family, so we moved around the United States quite a bit. I was born in Michigan, but went to college at UC Berkeley and UCLA. I went to medical school in Pennsylvania, but I wanted to return to Southern California. My career in family medicine allows me to help people of all ages and backgrounds. I enjoy the variety each day brings.
I treat all my members as if they were members of my own family. My main goal is for my members to feel comfortable enough with me to share their private feelings and concerns. Once people understand what they're feeling, physically or emotionally, they are better prepared to handle life's challenges. I hope that the time you spend here with me is helpful and valuable.
As a mother of three children, my life outside of work is busy. I have a son at California Polytechnic State University, a daughter at UC San Diego, and another daughter in High School here in Temecula. My husband is a wonderful man. We love sports—Ducks hockey, Angels baseball, and Clippers basketball—as well as the theater, jazz concerts, and traveling every year for our anniversary.
