Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I believe it’s important that you feel comfortable and confident with your personal physician. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and members, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I grew up in California and I truly love this state. I completed college, medical school, and my residency at USC, and I really enjoy being part of the Trojan family. I also played volleyball at USC and professionally—both indoors and on the beach. I have three young boys who make me smile every day. I’m one of five girls in my family and, by becoming an obstetrician and gynecologist, I feel like I’m helping my sisters daily.
About my practice
A career in medicine is a very special opportunity to connect with and help people in a meaningful way. Being a doctor allows people to share with me some of their most important concerns and hopes. It’s a privilege to help members with what concerns them, to help get them appropriate evaluations, and to communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their care, and I strive to treat them as I would my own family.
How I thrive
My family life is a major priority. We enjoy attending USC athletic events, going for walks with our yellow Labrador Retriever, visiting the beach, and toting our three boys around Los Angeles. I enjoy running, gardening, and playing volleyball when I get the chance.
