Welcome! I joined Kaiser in 2014 after 18 years in private practice focusing primarily on nasal, sinus, and sleep disorders. I love the team approach to care here at Kaiser Permanente and very much look forward to helping you improve your health.
I grew up in Maryland and obtained my bachelor's degree in chemistry from the University of Maryland. I was privileged to attend medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, the first medical school in the country. I moved on to Temple University Hospital for my training in otolaryngology and head and neck surgery. While in practice, I completed additional training in sleep medicine and became the first otolaryngologist in California to become board certified in sleep medicine.
Although I practice most areas of otolaryngology, my interests include the minimally invasive treatment of sleep disordered breathing as well as nasal and sinus disorders.
I love spending time with my husband and two daughters as well as gardening and walking.
