Where I practice
As I grow older, I love being an anesthesiologist even more. I'm extremely thankful to God for everything I have, especially for being a part of the Kaiser Permanente family, and for my children, my husband, my chief and all of my colleagues. I'm very proud of a part of our Department of Anesthesiology; our team members are friendly and amicable. The older I get, the more energetic I become. I love being here to help you care for your health.
It was such a natural decision for me to become a doctor because I grew up surrounded by doctors in my family. I was especially influenced by my father, who was a lifelong scholar and taught us that medicine is an art, that medicine is lifelong learning. He also taught us to never stop learning, to do our best and be hard-working, and to take care of patients.
About my practice
I'm very proud and honored to be a part of our department because we are a highly efficient team and top-notch in the use of advanced technology. Our devoted anesthesiologists care not only about their patients but also about the surgeons and entire staff.
How I thrive
I live a healthy lifestyle by spending time with my parents and listening to classical music-this is the source from which I derive the guiding principles of my life. I believe in being hard-working, and I feel a sense of accomplishment when I care for my patients. Working in a friendly atmosphere and learning new things give me more energy and stimulation.
