About Me

I am glad to have the opportunity to introduce myself and tell you about my practice. It is very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.


I was born in Arizona but I have always considered Southern California my home. I went to UCLA for my undergraduate and graduate education. I worked briefly for the Los Angeles health department and then moved to Colorado for medical school. Although Denver was beautiful, I always knew that I would return to California.

About my practice

I believe that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I am also here to help you when you are sick. Each member of my team strives towards these goals and contributes to improving member care. I also believe it is important to partner with members so that they are actively involved in their health care.

How I thrive

I try to maintain a balanced life. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, exploring San Diego, and exercising. My favorites forms of exercise are Pilates, yoga, and swimming.
