Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page! I am excited to be part of the Southern California Permanente Medical Group and look forward to serving you!
I am originally from the Midwest and grew up in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan. After graduating from Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan, I completed my residency through Virginia Commonwealth University-Fairfax Family Practice at Inova Fairfax Hospital near Washington, DC. My partner and I moved to Los Angeles because we wanted to be closer to our families and enjoy the beautiful weather. I am very excited to call California our new home!
About my practice
I believe that a strong relationship between myself and each member I treat is vital. I strive to create a judgment-free and welcoming environment where members feel empowered to take control of their health. My main focus is on prevention and working with members to identify lifestyle modifications that will help achieve their health and wellness goals. I also have strong interests in global health, travel medicine, HIV medicine, and LGBT health.
How I thrive
In my spare time, I love to travel and learn about different cultures. I prioritize leading an active lifestyle through weightlifting, running, playing with my dog, and trying new healthy recipes. I also love exploring this great city, so let me know if you have any recommendations!
