About Me

I hope this Web page provides helpful information for members and their families. Hopefully, you will also learn some additional information about me. I feel that the Pediatrics Department and medical group at Kaiser Permanente are made up of outstanding physicians and I am happy to be a member of this group.


I was born in Detroit, Michigan where I did my pediatric residency. I did further training in California and Maryland. I missed California, especially the weather, and decided to return and make this my home. I also like to travel and frequently go back to Michigan to see my family and friends.

About my practice

I have been a pediatrician since 1989. I really enjoy providing medical care to children and their families. Being a pediatrician allows me to care for a child until they are 18 years old. This allows me to really get to know my patients and respond to their needs.

How I thrive

I like taking walks and hiking around my neighborhood and I recently started taking a Pilates class. I also enjoy cooking and reading books.
