Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients.
I'm glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your child's physician and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I was born and raised in Southern California and enjoy this temperate, coastal climate. I obtained my undergraduate and medical degrees at the Universities of California , then continued my training in pediatrics. I knew at a young age that I wanted to work closely with children. I admired my own Kaiser Permanente pediatrician and aspired to be like him.
It's a privilege to be involved in the care of children and young adults. I thoroughly enjoy being part of their lives and watching them grow and develop. I feel very honored that patients and parents have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family. Preventative care is a huge factor in staying healthy. This includes immunizations, which I strongly encourage because they protect our children from getting sick and prevent our children from life-threatening infections.
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente’s philosophy of health in body, mind, and spirit, and I try to live it in my life every day. Being a mother is a huge priority in my life. I value time with my family as they keep me balanced and focused on the important things in life. In my spare time I enjoy entertaining, dining out, spending time with friends, cooking and baking, and crafting.
