Acerca de mí
I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and grew up in Kaimuki. I attended Punahou School and am of Japanese and Irish descent. Although I may not immediately look the part, I consider myself to be a true local girl. Upon graduating from Pennsylvania State University, I returned home to attend medical school at the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine. I was lucky enough to meet my husband, who was in law school, in a class co-taught by a law professor and a medical professor. Today, we enjoy living on the windward side of Oahu with our daughter.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
Women’s health incorporates elements of prevention, surgery, mental health and ethics, which I find challenging and fascinating. I relish the technical, hands-on nature of the operating room and cherish the relationships I form with my patients. As a member of the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group, I appreciate the consistent teamwork and that we are always striving to improve both ourselves and the patient-centered system in which we work. My care philosophy is to provide superior, compassionate, up-to-date medical care for women of all ages. I see myself as an advocate for patients’ physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being in a caring, safe and comfortable environment. I also believe in educating my patients on healthy lifestyles.
Cómo vivo bien
I enjoy staying active and particularly love to dance. I have a background in ballet, jazz, and Tahitian dance, and was an assistant director of the Penn State International Dance Ensemble. I toured briefly as a professional Tahitian dancer during medical school and am an active volunteer choreographer and instructor for Punahou School’s May Day (Holoku) Program. When I’m not working or dancing, I try to maintain a balanced lifestyle and “stop and smell the roses” by listening to music, practicing yoga, playing taiko drums, and spending time with family and friends.
