Where I practice
Welcome, Willkommen, Bienvenidos! I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of the wonderful colleagues and members I get to interact with every day. I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I have traveled the world and come to appreciate many wonderful places, yet I am very happy and thankful to call Southern California home. Very few places offer such a wide variety of natural and cultural opportunities. I enjoy a wide variety of physical activities, including going to the gym, running on the beach, swimming, cycling, yoga, snowboarding, and hiking. The more I can get out into nature, the better! I love to travel and take advantage of any opportunity to get to know a new region, country, and/or culture. Languages are an interest and hobby of mine, and I have basic conversational skills in a few.
About my practice
I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I am also here to help you when you are sick. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in taking care of your own health. I take care of members of all ages.
How I thrive
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of total health and try to live it in my own life. I make sure to exercise at least five days a week, often getting up early to work out before coming to our medical offices or the hospital. I try to remain up-to-date on current events and keep my brain sharp by continuing to learn new things and pursuing new interests.
