I grew up in sunny Southern California where I enjoyed going to the beach, amusement parks (mostly Disneyland), concerts, shows, the movies, and sporting events. If you are wondering if I’m a surfer, the answer is “nope,” because I am terrified of the creatures that may be lurking around in the ocean and I’m not a great swimmer! I am an only child, but I love spending time with my parents, extended family, and friends. I like to think I’m a “people person,” so I love my job since I have the opportunity to meet new people every day.My journey to getting to this career included going to undergrad at the University of California, Davis, medical school at Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine (AZCOM) at Midwestern University, and residency at Kaiser Permanente Southern California, Orange County. I had visited Denver a few times and I absolutely fell in love with the personality of the city. I love the cute historic homes, nature/greenery, the mountains, the friendly, laid-back people, and all the delicious restaurants. I felt that Colorado fit my personality very well so I decided to move out here and stick with the company I enjoyed training in during residency. I am living in Denver with my husband. We have a cat named “Buddy” and we may add a dog to our family before we think about having children.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
Through my professional journey, I have developed a passion for preventative medicine and I believe that many common chronic ailments can be treated or improved through a healthy lifestyle and this is what I emphasize and focus on in many of my encounters. I care about my patients’ health and safety and I strive to treat them as I would treat my own family members. I look forward to building a long and happy career with Kaiser Permanente Colorado.
Como vivo bien
I thrive by going on hikes, jogs, and going to the gym. Occasionally, I play tennis and golf, but sadly not very well. I enjoy cooking healthy meals and I love a new recipe, especially a crock pot recipe. My guilty pleasure is mindless TV.
