About Me

Welcome to my Web page. It’s my pleasure to introduce myself, and I look forward to being your doctor and friend.


I grew up in Santa Monica and I began to love medicine when I was only 10. I went to UC Berkeley for my undergraduate studies. I'd always wanted to be a surgeon like my father. But after my first experience working in the ER (emergency room) during medical school, I knew I’d found my specialty. I'm a mother of two beautiful daughters and I've been married for almost 20 years to my medical school classmate. As you know, the Emergency Department can be a chaotic and frightening place. My goal as a physician is to make your experience as pleasant and painless as possible.

How I thrive

I love spending time with my family and friends. I’m a foodie, I like to golf, and I love to travel with my family. No matter how busy or stressed I am, I always stop to appreciate life—which is beautiful and precious to me.
