Where I practice
Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to get to know me better. I’m a pediatrician at Kaiser Permanente’s Bellflower Medical Offices.
I am a Southern California native, born and raised in the LA area, and I’ve lived briefly in Mozambique and Italy. Being a Kaiser Permanente pediatrician has been my dream job since I was 4 years old! My father is also a Kaiser Permanente pediatrician, and I credit him for providing an exceptional example of medical care that I strive to provide to my members. Before becoming a pediatrician, I completed one year of surgical training. My husband is a former Marine; we have 2 wonderful sons and 2 old dogs, and we are foster parents for LA County.
About my practice
My practice covers general pediatrics, from birth to 18 years old. As a mother, I know how important children are to their parents. My goal is to provide high-quality care to the infants, children, adolescents, and young adults I see in my practice. I truly believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so I encourage healthy eating, exercise, and a good night’s sleep. But I know members can still get sick, and when they do, I want to help them get better again. Because medicine is constantly changing, I attend educational meetings and seminars to make sure I stay current with the latest methods. I believe in taking advantage of the latest advances in pediatric medicine, including immunizations and other important preventive measures that promote well-being and health. I welcome families of all backgrounds warmly and consider my practice to be inclusive to all people.
How I thrive
My family is very meaningful to me. Spending quality time with them includes cooking and eating healthy meals, going to Disneyland, bike rides to the park, sports events, and rooting for the Dodgers!
