Welcome! I’m pleased to introduce myself as a member of your health care team. I’m very fortunate to work with outstanding colleagues who share my dedication to helping our members! Working together, we strive to deliver high-quality care.
I grew up in Southern California. I went to UC San Diego for college, and then UC Irvine for both medical school and my residency. I’ve been practicing with Kaiser Permanente since 2000.
As an obstetrician and gynecologist, I have a very special opportunity to connect with women in a meaningful way. I recognize the importance of providing personalized care for my members that encompasses compassion as well as comprehensive attention to all aspects of a woman's life. I believe that medical care should focus not only on healing and treatment of disease, but also on the prevention of illness and promotion of wellness. In addition to focusing on health maintenance, I specialize in minimally invasive medical and surgical treatments for a variety of gynecologic conditions. My goal at each visit is to listen well, address all your concerns, and explain your treatment options in easy-to-understand language. The close relationships I’ve formed with my members bring me great satisfaction as we journey through life's experiences together. It’s exceptionally gratifying to play a role in women's health care. I look forward to an opportunity to be your partner in health.
I’m also a proud mother of three children, and the wife of a wonderful husband. I strive to be well-balanced outside of the hospital. This allows me to be a better physician. A goal of mine is to exercise regularly—it helps keep my mind sharp and energy level high. I enjoy yoga, reading, traveling, and spending quality time with my family.
