Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I would like to introduce myself so you can get to know me a little better.
I was born and raised in Norway and also completed my medical school training at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology before my husband’s job brought us to California. I was very excited to continue my medical training in California. Initially, I completed residency in internal medicine in Long Beach, followed by dermatology residency at UC Irvine. Having a background in internal medicine prior to training in dermatology has helped me better appreciate the complexity of some of the medical conditions in the skin. We have loved California ever since we moved here — the climate, all the beautiful beaches, mountains, hiking areas, and all the activities available. I also very much enjoy being a part of Kaiser Permanente and working as part of a team to provide high-quality care to our members.
About my practice
I’m very interested in and fascinated by all the aspects of dermatology from common conditions like eczema and acne to more complex skin rashes and skin cancers. I also enjoy how dermatology care ranges from complex medical management to surgical treatment. In addition, I believe that knowledge about your medical conditions helps you better treat and manage them. I enjoy educating my members about their skin conditions and about skin care in general.
How I thrive
I’m fortunate to have a job that I’m passionate about. In addition, maintaining work-life balance is important to me. I love spending time with my family — my 3 sons and my husband. We enjoy outdoor activities like hiking and skiing and spending time with friends.
