Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and patients, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I am a native Southern Californian who loves the outdoors and the variety of outdoor activities that my family and I can take advantage of here. Even when I was a young child, I knew that I wanted to be a doctor. I knew that I wanted to be able to make a real difference in people’s lives, and practicing medicine gives that opportunity.
I feel that healthy living and preventive care are some of the best ways to stay healthy, but I am also here to help you when you are sick. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me take better care of you when you are actively involved in taking care of your health.
Keeping my work and home lives in balance is important to me. I believe in the saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” I try and stay active with visits to the gym or tennis court, or a brisk walk with a friend. My children are all grown and out on their own; two are married, so now I have more time at home to fill. I enjoy playing the cello or guitar, or just sitting down to read a good book. I am also now involved with community service as a member of the San Bernardino County Sheriff Medical Reserve Corps, which is open for anyone who wants to be available to help out the community in a disaster.
