About Me

Welcome to Kaiser Permanente. I want to take this opportunity to briefly introduce myself and my practice.


I was born and raised in Los Angeles, then moved to Northern California to attend university, medical school, and a pediatric residency program. After 13 years in the Bay Area, I returned to Southern California, where I initially worked in a private practice before joining Kaiser Permanente in the Pediatrics Department.

About my practice

I view medicine as a partnership between families and myself. I try to arm parents and their children with the best tools to fight illness and lead healthy, active lives. As with all partnerships, communication is key, so I encourage open dialogue and I try to be available to answer any questions you send to my office via phone or email.

How I thrive

A few of my favorite things include novels, all sports (especially women’s volleyball), red wine, my family, my friends, and my Akita dog.
