Welcome to Kaiser Permanente and my Web page. I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2013 after more than 15 years of experience in primary care, including prenatal and pediatric care. I enjoy the camaraderie and the quality of the physicians at Kaiser Permanente.
I am a working mother with two children and an 80-pound dog—and they, by necessity, are my main hobby. And because I’m also taking care of my aging parents as well as my kids, I am an active member of the sandwich generation.
I am one of six children from an immigrant family. Education was a strong theme in my upbringing, and it is the hallmark of my style of practicing medicine. I strive to help you understand your symptoms and suggest ways to improve your health in the context of your individual work and family situation.
Staying flexible in mind and body is how I believe we can best adapt to the challenges of each era of aging. While I stay physically active through yoga and other sports, I deeply appreciate how yoga opens the mind to humility, patience, and awareness.
