About Me

Hello and welcome to my Web page! It is my privilege to be a part of your health care team. I take pride in being able to ensure that your ocular health is being thoroughly evaluated. It is my goal to ensure that my patients are well informed. I look forward to working together with you to care for your health.


I was born and raised in California (and born in a Kaiser Permanente hospital in Sacramento!). I attended graduate school in Chicago, which was an amazing opportunity. I was happy to give away my snow shovel and return to sunny California; I don't think I will ever leave. Optometry gives me the opportunity to have a good work-life balance and still have a positive impact on the quality of life of my patients.

About my practice

I have been an optometrist for 12 years. My emphasis in practice has been general optometry and ocular surgery co-management. I am impressed on a daily basis with the integrated system of healthcare that Kaiser Permanente provides to our patients.

How I thrive

Spending time with family and friends and staying active is how I thrive. I enjoy taking my motorcycle to the various tracks in California—this is my form of relaxation. I can often be found in my garage working on anything with wheels and a motor.
