Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and patients, and look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I grew up in South El Monte. I attended Stanford University for my undergraduate studies, where I majored in human biology with an area of concentration in health care policy. I attended the Drew/UCLA for medical school, then had my pediatric residency training at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. I developed a special interest in pediatric rheumatology and decided to continue my pediatric rheumatology training at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. As for my personal life, I'm married and have two wonderful boys who keep us very busy!
I chose pediatric rheumatology because it is a wonderful experience to take care of children with chronic diseases. It is amazing to see how resilient children can be.
I feel that having a balance between career and family is very important. I chose to work four days a week so I could spend extra time with my family. My husband and I enjoy playing with our children. I also enjoy running, swimming, and going on the elliptical at least four times a week.
