Where I practice
Hello, and welcome to my Web page! I have been with Kaiser Permanente since 2015, and am proud to be a part of such a strong team of physicians. I'm excited to have the opportunity to introduce myself and my practice.
I was born and raised in Pacific Palisades— right in the neighborhood! I earned my BA in communication and business from the University of Arizona. Working in television broadcasting, marketing and studies abroad , it was only later, after spending some time in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, that I discovered my true passion. Inspired by the medicine behind these industries, I “hit the restart button” and returned to school for a change in career, earning my medical doctorate from St. George’s University in Grenada. Returning to West Los Angeles was my ultimate goal, to help care for the community that took such great care of me in my youth. I found myself driven to be a part of the Kaiser Permanente team because of their phenomenal care, team approach to medicine and community outreach.
About my practice
I enjoy the practice of family medicine, because I can get to know my members and they get to know me. What’s more, I can provide care to their whole family of all ages. My top priority is to provide excellent medical care in a non-threatening manner, all while encouraging you to become a partner in your own health care. Healthy diet and exercise are always encouraged, though health is not only about your body, but also your mind and soul. A positive outlook and willingness to try helps foster our partnership.
How I thrive
I thrive through learning from my past and my excitement for what the future holds. My family is always my top priority. I try to stay healthy by keeping physically active and having a well-balanced vegetarian diet. My favorite past-times are spending time outdoors with friends and family, sunset chasing, view-seeking, travelling, fine wining and dining, pets and spontaneous adventures.
