Where I practice
Hello! Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you. I have been in La Mesa since 2008. I enjoy working at Kaiser Permanente with my great colleagues and our members, and I look forward to meeting you!
I grew up in a military family and my husband was in the military so we have moved around a lot. I have lived on the East Coast, the West Coast, and overseas. I have been in San Diego since the early '80s. I did my residency in Cedar Rapids, Iowa − the Heartland. I was the oldest of seven children and have five of my own who are pretty much grown and having their own children. Families are wonderful.
About my practice
I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to thrive, but I am also here to support you when you are sick and need care. You will find I always encourage you to exercise and keep fit to the best of your ability. At the same time, you and I are partners in your health planning.
How I thrive
Stay well! Eat healthy. Get plenty of sleep. Most of all − keep moving! Those are the secrets to staying healthy. Exercise is the key to helping your heart, lungs, and spirit soar. I have been an avid swimmer my whole life. I was a water safety instructor for 30 years. I enjoy ocean swimming as well. I often encourage others to get in the water, be it swimming or walking in the surf, you will come out feeling better!
