Hi, and welcome to my Web page! I am happy to have this opportunity to introduce myself to you and tell you about my work as a pediatric hospitalist at Downey Medical Center.
From a young age, I always wanted to be a doctor. During medical school, my favorite rotation was pediatrics — I love interacting with children and their families. I moved to Southern California from Arizona for my pediatric residency in 2002 and never went back. I live by the beach and enjoy the beautiful weather and many outdoor activities that California has to offer.
I work as a pediatric hospitalist, which means I care for members in the hospital setting. We have a wonderful team of doctors, specialists, nurses, respiratory therapists, social workers, and many others here at Downey Medical Center to make your child’s hospital stay as comfortable as possible.
I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 daughters when I am not working. We are a very active family and love the outdoors: biking, swimming, or relaxing at the beach. For my personal wellness, I enjoy running, Pilates, yoga, and reading. My husband and I also enjoy going to concerts whenever we have some free time.
