Hello, and welcome to my Web page! I am excited to give Kaiser Permanente members an opportunity to get to know me betters.
I am originally from Texas and moved to Orange County, CA when I was a child. I’ve been in love with the area ever since. I love the weather, beaches, cultural diversity, and great dining spots in the area. I thrive by maintaining a balance between my family and time as a physician. I have an amazing wife and two great kids who help me stay grounded and constantly on the move.
I have known ever since medical school that I wanted to practice pediatric critical care. When a child is in the intensive care unit, the stress and anxiety associated with having a sick child, in addition to understanding the medical complexities of the illness itself, can be very overwhelming to parents and family members. Our goal in the pediatric ICU is to provide a supportive environment for family members so they can get through this tremendously stressful period in their lives.
I thrive in mind, body, and spirit by traveling and experiencing different locales and cultures. My hobbies include playing sports, hiking, and shopping at farmers markets, which is wonderful to do in the California sunshine.
