Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page, and thank you for taking some time to learn more about my practice. I hope the information here will help you decide if I am the right pediatrician for your child.
Although I grew up in a small town in Northern California, I consider San Diego my home. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else! Here, I can spend time with my husband and two boys on a variety of adventures.
About my practice
I joined the Kaiser Permanente Clairemont Mesa Medical Offices in 2007. I enjoy working as part of a team and doing my best to provide quality, personalized pediatric care with a focus on development and wellness for children, from birth to the college years. I support preventive care, such as vaccinations, and also encourage early exposure to books and reading.
How I thrive
I believe that I should follow the same healthy lifestyle recommendations I give my patients: I eat a balanced diet of fresh foods and keep my body in motion. I completed my first half marathon in 2013, but I find it difficult to fit intensive training into my schedule on an ongoing basis, so lately, I've been doing weekly yoga/Pilates, swimming laps, walking the dogs, running when I can, and walking the kids to school. We enjoy hiking, boating, camping, swimming, and just about anything that gets us out into the beautiful San Diego sunshine!
