Aloha and welcome to Kaiser Permanente Optometry—and to my Web page!
I was born and raised in Hilo, Hawaii. I was always interested in healthcare and vision, and therefore was drawn to the field of optometry. I came to California to attend the Southern California College of Optometry. After graduating, I worked in private practice for many years. Then, about 10 years ago I joined the Kaiser Permanente organization and have since settled in at the Bellflower Medical Offices.
I bring to members over 25 years of general optometry experience. Since I believe that vision our most important sense, it is very rewarding to help my patients achieve the best possible vision that will enhances their lives.
I enjoy travel and working on cars. As the years have gone by, I understand more and more the phrase "If you have your health, you have everything." A key component of my ability to thrive is to get daily exercise and maintain a healthy diet.
