About me

Hello! I feel fortunate to be part of Kaiser Permanente, and I’d be glad to be of service to you to care for your health.

Biography

I was born, I’m told under the silver moon, in a little beach town off the Pacific Ocean along the coast of Mexico. My early childhood was a magical time in a tiny rural town, a place of rivers, thunderstorms, mountains, fruit trees, rainbows, and volcanoes—a place where time seemed to often stand still. During those years, I was exposed to a strong sense of family, community, respect, tradition, and closeness to Mother Nature. My grandmother, the nucleus of our immense extended family, was the revered town healer. Her wisdom, knowledge, endless energy, and ability to selflessly care for and guide others were a great influence to me and many others. My adolescent years in Southern California were a sharp contrast to my childhood, but I was no less awed by it all, and I soaked up all the experiences with an Alice in Wonderland mentality. The sense of curiosity and joy of learning translated to all areas of my life, including academics.

About my practice

I studied medicine at Kansas University. I trained in internal medicine and served as chief resident at Cambridge Hospital, which is affiliated with Harvard Medical School. My practice at Kaiser Permanente is in the field of hospital medicine. Hospital medicine is a new field. As a hospitalist, I’m involved in a patient’s care while he or she is hospitalized. The spectrum of my services continues to expand. I’m involved with patient care from the time a member enters the hospital all the way to coordinating his or her post-visit care.

How I thrive

I enjoy time with my family, photography, reading, and cycling.
