About me

Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself and tell you about my work as a physician at Kaiser Permanente.

Biography

My desire to be a physician emerged during elementary school and has continued to the present. I had asthma as a child and thus had a lot of personal experience with medical care and being a patient from a young age. This childhood experience triggered my interest in medicine. I chose primary care because I think it is important to treat the whole person. In addition, I believe in the importance of preventive medicine and education. When I’m not at work, I spend time with my husband, our two children, and our dog.

About my practice

I’m an internal medicine physician practicing general medicine and geriatrics outside the hospital. My practice is located at the Kaiser Permanente Aliso Viejo Medical Offices. I’ve given more than 15 years of service at Kaiser Permanente, and I would not want to be anywhere else. My office is near Laguna Woods, and I primarily work with geriatric members. I believe in screening to catch health problems early, maximizing quality of life, and caring for all facets of the member. I enjoy helping members to still have many new experiences as they age and to continue to enjoy life. I believe in a team approach incorporating my staff, the member, the member’s family, and me.

How I thrive

I think living a balanced life is the key to staying well. My family life is my highest priority. My husband is a gem. He cooks dinner and even washes all the dishes! In turn, I spend a lot of time helping support my daughters with their education and development. I volunteer at their school and help with their scouting projects. My older daughter is in high school and is very creative and musical. My younger daughter is a nurturer and has gone up the evolutionary tree caring for creatures. We started with ladybugs in kindergarten and now she’s taking care of her own cat. I also frequently visit my father and in-laws who live nearby. I live a healthy lifestyle—I exercise daily and eat low-fat foods. Unfortunately for my husband's waistline, I’ve taken up baking and cake decorating. My favorite plants are orchids and my favorite place is Kauai, Hawaii.
