Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to introduce myself, and tell you about my practice. It is very important that you feel comfortable with your child's personal physician, and I hope this page will help you get to know me.
I am a native Southern Californian, born and raised in the Inland Empire. I attended UCLA as an undergraduate and medical student, and somehow, still found time to travel to many different countries. After finishing my medical training, I returned to my home to raise my children and practice medicine.
Since joining the Kaiser Permanente Fontana Medical Center in 1999, I have enjoyed serving families of many diverse backgrounds. I believe that high quality medical care involves taking the time to listen to patients and parents as well as discussing the many aspects of treatment and preventive medicine. I try to empower my patients and their families by providing them the tools to make the best choices for their long-term health and wellbeing. In addition to my general pediatrics practice, I am involved in community outreach to improve childhood nutrition and fitness throughout the region.
I maintain my own wellness by staying active. I recently learned how to wake up early, and discovered it feels great to start my day with exercise. I enjoy local hikes and long bike rides with my husband, as well as cheering and supporting my family's numerous athletic activities. I like to end each day by sharing a healthy meal as a family. Staying connected with my extended family and maintaining a close, rich relationship with my teenage and young adult children helps me thrive.
