Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients.
Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I am glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It is important to me that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you learn more about me.
I am a native Southern Californian and love the many opportunities this state has to offer. I began my first two years of medical school in Missouri. My husband and I decided to move back to California to be with our families and enjoy a more pleasing climate. I finished my pediatric residency at Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles and have stayed with the Kaiser Permanente family ever since.
I am a full-time pediatrician and see patients from birth to age 18. Each momentous year in childhood has its own special joys and trials. It is my goal to work in partnership with families to guide parents through the rewards and challenges of healthy intentional parenting. I love first time parents and sharing in their joy. Adolescence is a unique time in development and often an awkward stage. However, I enjoy the diverse experiences, challenges, and satisfaction of working with teenagers.
I try to walk or jog 30 minutes daily outdoors. In the winter, I love to ski with my family. I enjoy long walks along the beach, scuba diving, traveling, and visiting friends and family. I love food and I try to cook, but thankfully I am a better physician than chef. Scrapbooking and photography are also ways I relax and document our family history. You will find my exam rooms are decorated with photos I have taken. I look forward to meeting you and working with you!
