Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I’m excited to have this opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me. Above all, it’s important for you to be your own best advocate for your health.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. And at heart, I‘m a UCLA Bruin and UC Irvine College of Medicine Anteater. I decided to become a physician at the age of 8 after my mother had a stroke. I vowed that as an advocate for her and all women, I would always do my very best to heal and support the women I treat. Easily, my greatest achievements are my marriage of nearly 20 years and my two beautiful children. Each day I’m grateful to be in their presence. Truly, I enjoy waking up each day to new possibilities. For fun, I run with my dog, and travel as much as I can.
As a former private practitioner and business owner, I believe in women as the foundation for a healthy society. We cannot be healthy as a country without healthy, vibrant women. I seek to encourage through example and practice a lifestyle that leads to healthy outcomes. I strongly believe that medicine does not have all the answers—physicians and members must be partners in health care. Together we heal.
Living healthy starts with a proper state of mind. I believe that all of us have the power to choose to live the healthiest, fullest life possible. It’s up to us to choose wisely. Traveling regenerates me, my family reenergizes me, and I’m honored to work here at Kaiser Permanente.
