About Me

Welcome to my Web page. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.


I'm a native Southern Californian who moved to the San Diego area to be with my husband. I've always known I wanted to be a pediatrician, and it was confirmed the day my younger sister was born. Taking care of her solidified my resolve to be involved and proactive in children's health and well-being. Having children of my own now makes me strive even harder to be a better pediatrician. I don't think being a pediatrician made me a better mother but that being a mother made me a better pediatrician.

About my practice

I feel that the best way to stay healthy is preventive care, but I'm also here to help you when you are sick. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in taking care of your health.

How I thrive

Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I try to eat a healthy and balanced diet and I love walking everywhere with my dogs. My family is very important to me, and I try to spend time with them whenever I can. I also make it a priority to set aside time to just relax or read a good novel.
