I was born in Trinidad and Tobago. In 1994, I moved to the U.S. to pursue higher education. During my college years, my interest in the study of medicine was born after I participated in an internship at Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore, Md. It inspired me to study medicine so that I could be of service to my community. I chose the specialty of family medicine so I can help each family member, encourage healthy lifestyles and preventive care, and to encourage my patients to reach their greatest potential in life by staying healthy.
I am a member of the Kaiser Permanente Family Practice Department. I see members of all ages, from newborns to our geriatric members. I endeavor to treat each patient as if they were my family. I strive to be fully attentive, listen carefully and provide high-quality medical care. My desire is for our members to be healthy physically, mentally and emotionally. I look forward to getting up each day to work towards my goal of delivering the best primary care on the planet.
I practice what I preach. Work-life balance is very important to me. To do so, I try to adhere to a plant-based and healthy diet, exercise regularly, and spend quality time with my family and friends. By taking care of me, I can give my best to our members and help them take care of themselves and their families.
