Where I practice
Thank you for visiting my Web page. I am thankful to be able to work at Kaiser Permanente, where I am surrounded by bright and enthusiastic coworkers. I look forward to working with you to care for your newborn.
Originally from southern New Jersey, I attended Wagner College, where I graduated summa cum laude with my Bachelor of Science degree. I subsequently attended George Washington University School of Medicine, where I obtained my medical degree. I completed by general pediatrics training at UCLA and then went on to subspecialize in neonatal-perinatal medicine at LAC+USC Hospital.
About my practice
I fell in love with neonatology early in my medical training. The part of the job I find most inspiring is the resilience of premature and critically ill infants. Each baby is really filled with endless potential, and it’s my job to help them achieve it. In order to do this, I think it is more effective to work as a team. That means working with nursing, respiratory therapists, moms, dads, social workers, dietitians, and others. Everyone’s opinions, ideas, and questions are valid. We’re all in this with one common goal: to help babies heal.
How I thrive
I love to spend time with my family and friends, enjoying all the wonderful things Los Angeles has to offer. I find a lot of peace in practicing yoga and love to eat out, lounge by the pool, and to go see live theater performances.
