Welcome to my Web page. I strive to make a special connection with each member I meet, along with their families. I hope to see you in my practice soon.
I was born in New York and raised in northern New Jersey. The four seasons and the city life of the Northeast enriched my upbringing, but the year-round sun made my move to California easy. My desire to be a physician was inspired at a young age by my father, who is also a pediatrician, and my biggest role model. He always came home with a genuine smile on his face because his patients kept him rejuvenated and motivated. I fell in love with his career. My passion increased during medical school when I began treating kids. Their innocence, imagination, and resilience motivate me to be the best doctor for them. They also give me a daily reminder of life's simple pleasures. Now that I have become a mother myself, my love for my job has grown immensely and my taught me all the secrets that medical school couldn’t.
Preventive care, parental education, and guidance towards a healthy lifestyle for the family as a whole are the three major ways I try to keep kids healthy, physically and mentally. When kids are sick, I strive to provide high-quality care while involving the parents in all decision making.
I live well by keeping my own balance between work, family, and life. My philosophy is a balanced mind makes a strong body, and that ensures a healthy lifestyle. I love taking advantage of the outdoors by going hiking, biking, and skiing. I love to dance, laugh, and spend time with my family.
