Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this opportunity to introduce myself to you. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and our members, and I look forward to working with you to care for your family.
I grew up in Northern California and was a Kaiser Permanente member. I remember visiting my pediatrician and how nice she was, though I confess I did not like getting my shots. According to my mother, being a doctor was something I always wanted to do. Perhaps it was because I had such an amazing doctor as a child. After medical school, I worked in Oregon for a few years and then moved down to sunnier, drier San Diego.
I love watching families grow and listening to their stories. As a doctor, I feel that I have a unique opportunity to help encourage healthy habits, which I hope will translate to healthy, active lives and more amazing stories from my families. I want to be your partner in health.
Going out for a walk every day lets me watch how the landscape changes with the seasons. It also gives me an opportunity to daydream about places I would like to visit someday, such as Mount Rushmore. I truly enjoy watching my family go through their day and listening to the recap at the end.
