Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you get to know me. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and members, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I grew up on the East Coast and received my undergraduate education at Cornell University, then went on to the Medical College of Pennsylvania. I chose to be a family physician because I believe in caring for the total person, in all stages of a person's life, from birth to one's final days. I believe that the mind, body, and emotions are equally important and are affected by each person's relationships. I understand the stress of daily life, being a mother of three active young children, a wife, and a daughter.
My team of medical assistants, nurses, and I are busy. We focus on helping our members be as healthy as possible by forging relationships and partnerships. We strive to meet individual needs. I am here to guide you through the medical information, so that together we can make educated decisions that are best for you.
My family is what keeps me grounded. A smile and a hug keep me whole. Honestly, who has time for hobbies with three kids, but when I get the time, I enjoy being outside, doing puzzles, and reading.
