Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients.
Hello, and welcome to my Web page! I hope this site gives you the chance to learn about me and my philosophy in caring for your children.
I grew up in Orange County and stayed relatively local, attending UCLA for college, where I received my bachelor’s degree in psychobiology. After graduating, I traveled in Asia, worked in clinical research, and then pursued a graduate degree while teaching high school science. As much as I loved working with children in the classroom, I felt limited on what I could do with each student and the level of care I wanted to provide. This sentiment helped me survive Philadelphia winters for medical school and brought me back to my alma mater in Los Angeles to complete my pediatric residency.
It is my hope to advocate for your child and provide quality care. I truly believe caring for children involves not only empathy and open communication but also a partnership between the physician and the parents.
Whenever I have the chance, I give in to my sense of wanderlust and travel abroad. Otherwise, I try to stay active with running, hiking, and practicing yoga. I also enjoy being a “foodie,” exploring new restaurants, and creating my own recipes.
