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.
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.
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.
