Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, where I spent most of my childhood playing in the sun and swimming in the Pacific Ocean. But it wasn’t until I moved out to the East Coast for medical school in Boston that I realized Southern California would always be my home. I went into medicine—specifically family medicine—knowing there’s a great need for primary care, and I had a strong desire to work towards prevention of disease. I remain active in my community in outreach programs that target at-risk youth, with the aim of building healthier and happier communities and neighborhoods.
I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I'm also here to help you when you’re sick. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you’re actively involved in taking care of your health.
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of health in mind, body, and spirit, and I try to live it in my life every day. I enjoy yoga and meditation, and try to incorporate running and swimming into my weekly routine. I also have a passion for healthy cooking and eat a mostly vegetarian diet.
